On Thursday, 9 October, at 12:30 p.m., at the Atwater Library in Montreal, Suzie LeBlanc will give a presentation about Elizabeth Bishop and will perform some of the songs from "I am in need of music." This presentation is part of the library's "Lunchtime Series" http://www.atwaterlibrary.ca/events/lunchtime-lecture-series.

Suzie was the final artist in residence at the Elizabeth Bishop House this past weekend, and she spent some time taking photos of the house, village and bay to use in her presentation.
The artist retreat has now closed.
Before her Bishop talk in Montreal, Suzie will be attending a Masterworks Arts Award event. On Monday, 15 September, "the Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Awards Foundation will host a public panel discussion with the creators of the five works selected as the 2014 Finalists for the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award. The event will be held in Neptune Theatre’s Scotiabank Studio at 1593 Argyle Street from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m." This event is open to the public.
Suzie also has a new CD, "Suzie LeBlanc La Veillee de Noel de la France a l'Acadie" (apologies for lack of accents) due to launch later this year. She will be giving a performance of this wonderful music in Halifax on 17 December at the Music Room.
