Hope your summers are rocking hard so far. I’m really excited to announce the “One for the Books” Summer Story contest. I want to hear all about what you’ve been up to! I want to hear about the nights you can’t remember, the ones you hope no one else remembers, and the memories you’ll never forget from the summertime.
Write in or send a video with your “One for the Books” summer story to help pay for your books this fall. The best story wins a cash prize to be put towards any educational expedition you might be heading on to. Check out some of my friends’ summer stories to get the idea at mollythomason.com/stories.
P.S. If you do not want your story or video posted on the contest page, please note that in your email.
Molly is performing at the Festival of Good Things on August 30 at Sarnia Bay Marina, along with Gord Downie, The Sadies, The Conquering Sun, Library Voices, and Craig Cardiff.

Fresh off a busy summer of shows, a tour with Collective Soul, and a new record, Nova Scotia native Molly Thomason is now filming “Owl River Runners” in Hampton, NB. The film is part of the inaugural 10K Canadian Film Challenge presented by Avi Federgreen and Indiecan Entertainment. The project aims to help first-time feature filmmakers create a film with a $10,000 budget. Emerging film makers will be mentored by local producers, as well as Federgreen himself. One of six films being created across the country, “Owl River Runners” is written by award winning writer/producer, Chris Fulton.
Although this is Molly’s first role, she is no stranger to the world of film and TV. Mom, Shelley Thompson, is a well-established actress best known for her character Barbara Lahey on the hit Canadian mockumentary program Trailer Park Boys, and dad, Ed Thomason, is the artistic director of Theatre Antigonish.
Once Molly wraps up filming, she’ll be making her way to the United States to complete residencies at the North Star Bar in Philadelphia, and Rockwood Music Hall and the legendary Manhattan bar Piano’s, both in New York City.
