Letter to the editor 4, November 5, 2015
Dear Editor, This year’s 14th edition of StoryFest has just finished, and what a remarkable festival it has been. Our audiences were delighted with this year’s celebrated authors, poets and playwrights: Kim Thuy, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Kathleen Winter, Lisa Moore, Sean Michaels, Tomson Highway, David Halton, Louise Carson, Marco Fraticelli, David Groulx and Lauren B. Davis, and enthralled with the performance by Helen Mirren in ‘The Audience.’
Greenwood would like to thank all of them for their participation in StoryFest, as well as a host of partners who contributed to StoryFest in so many ways. These include: The Canada Council of the Arts, the Town of Hudson, the MRC of Vaudreuil-Soulanges, The Hudson Village Theatre, The Stephen F. Shaar Community Centre, MNA Marie-Claude Nichols, The Willow Inn, The War Memorial Library, Westwood High School, John Abbott College, The Quebec Writers’ Federation, Theatre Panache, The Hudson Film Society, IGA Poirier, Pure Art, The Château Vaudreuil, Librairie Clio, Frank Royle, Gerry and Elizabeth Semmelhaack, Anonymous, Bert Markgraf, Susan Kennedy and Ron Laursen, Michael and Jill Legg, Littner Baker Associates, Les vins elegant, Scott Geiring, Stuart LeBaron and Your Local Journal.
StoryFest would not be possible without the amazing efforts of our StoryFest Committee, whose members include Julie Gedeon, Susan Gilmore, Marlene Donegan, Mary Vuorela, Heather Markgraf, Diane Ratcliffe, Sandra Stephenson, Suzanne Walsh, Jane Havard and Terry O’Shaughnessy. A huge thank you to them for their inspiration and hard work! Finally, thank you to this wonderful community that supports both StoryFest and Greenwood in so many ways. We look forward to a banner year next October, when we promise to bring you a spectacular lineup to celebrate our 15th anniversary of StoryFest. Audrey Wall Executive Director
