A small handful of people from Pender will likely email me after reading the book and viewing this website to complain. You see, there is no such thing as Pender Island. There is North Pender, and South Pender. They are two different islands. Historically they have been separate until a short bridge was put in place to link them. After that revolution in the mobility history of the two islands, “Pender” Island was born. Today, almost everyone refers to Pender Island as a whole, but a few sourtherners like to remind their northern neighbors that they are quite different. To me this works as a fantastic reminder of how much mobility matters in the formation of place.
