Down Home with Clara Dugas: June 27, 2021

Come laugh with us as we enjoy the stories of women’s lives in rural Nova Scotia, tales filled with challenges, hard work and humour.

Storytelling is a talent that the Dugas family, from Nova Scotia’s Baie Sainte-Marie, has passed down from generation to generation and Clara’s first teacher was her mother. Sharing her storytelling talents, Clara has performed at festivals, in schools and libraries across Canada, in the United States and France. She taught storytelling to junior and senior high school students, preparing them for their own storytelling festivals. Her years in the classroom and her childhood memories feed many of her stories.

Sit back and relax on Sunday, June 27, starting at 3pm Pacific Daylight Time.
