Remembering Townships Poet D.G. JONES in North Hatley

120 Houghton Street, North Hatley, QC (Map link here)

September 26th, 4pm

SIGN UP HERE

We will gather at Jones’ former residence in North Hatley: 120 Houghton street.
Those who are able to park in the municipal parking and walk the 800 meters are encouraged to do so.

One of Canada’s pre-eminent lyric poets, D.G. Jones was also a renowned translator, teacher and editor. Lauded for the musicality of his words and his mastery of poetic form, he had a profound influence on the work of some of Canada’s best known poets. Through innovative ventures in education and publishing, notably as a founding editor of the literary journal Ellipse, he was seminal figure in promoting intercultural understanding between French and English Canada.
