Steve Luxton’s Eastern Townships Literary Rambles are now part of history.

Over the past few years, Steve Luxton, Poet in Residence of the Lennoxville Library presented a series of self-titled “Literary Rambles” at various historically interesting sites around the Eastern Townships.

Steve reads excerpts and discusses the lives and conversations he had with a number of noted literary personalities and poets such as Thomas Gray, Louis Dudek, Ralph Gustafson, and D.G. Jones.

The archival entries can be found here:

The videos are available to watch on the ArtsUnaean website and YouTube Channel.

Haiku & Sushi

On July 7, 2023 Gabriel Safdie of the Centre des Arts de Stanstead, and Angela Leuck, President of Haiku Canada organized an intriguing combination of workshops held in the Café/Bar Cabaret Sans Frontières (formerly the Eastern Townships Bank on Dufferine Street in Stanstead Quebec).

The event, composed of a haiku writing session with Angela, was followed by a participatory demonstration of "How to make vegetarian sushi." This is the sushi making portion. Enjoy!
