“There’s no safe level of it,” says Meg McCallum, Director of Programming and District Services at the Canadian Cancer Society, Nova Scotia Division. Meg says people have to look beyond the smoker and realize tobacco use affects everyone.

Anna Quon in the Czech Republic, November 2010

Our guest blogger Anna Quon, an accomplished freelance/creative writer and writing workshop facilitator, who lives in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, will share her experiences living in the Czech Republic for three months.

Anna is volunteering at Townshend International School as Writer-in-Residence and then doing a writing residency at Milkwood International (where she will devote her time to revising her second novel and writing poetry).

She considers the former Czechoslovakia as the home of her imagination, after falling in love with Czech expatriate writer Milan Kundera's novel, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, more than 20 years ago.

Anna is passionate about many things, especially writing. It is through her writing, and her volunteer work with community organizations, that Anna honours the lives of people who, like her, are living with mental illness. In 2008, she received the Inspiring Lives Award from the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. In 2009, she published her first novel titled Migration Songs which was shortlisted for the Dartmouth Book Award.
