A Pocket of Time Children's Book by Emma Fitzgerald
Lovingly rendered, A Pocket of Time: The Poetic Childhood of Elizabeth Bishop written by Rita Wilson and illustrated by Emma FitzGerald tells the story of Bishop’s childhood days in Great Village, Nova Scotia. It includes snippets of the iconic poet’s own poetry and prose, paired with eclectic collage-style artwork from illustrator Emma FitzGerald. A love letter to words, A Pocket of Time is a lesson for young readers in finding the poetry in everything.
It was shortlisted for IBBY Canada's 2020 Cleaver Award for excellence in Illustration.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Emma FitzGerald was born to Irish parents in Lesotho, a small mountainous kingdom in Southern Africa. She moved to Canada at a young age and spent most of her childhood in Vancouver, BC. These early travels have instilled in her a keen interest in people and places.
Emma has followed a career path that is part architecture, part art, receiving a BFA in Visual Art from the University of British Columbia in 2004, and a Masters in Architecture from Dalhousie University in 2008. She has worked in architecture offices across Canada and with Peter Rich Architects in Johannesburg, South Africa. There she worked on the award winning Mapangubwe Interpretive Centre and Alexandra Heritage Centre.
Her art practice is characterised by on-site drawing, place-based research, and a sense of the poetic. This work has taken her from textile factories in her birth country of Lesotho, to the various houses of Canadian American poet Elizabeth Bishop. She has exhibited widely, and participated in several artist residency programmes including Largo das Artes in Rio de Janeiro, and the Santa Fe Art Institute's thematic residency in New Mexico.
