Not Just Evangeline: A Look at Real Acadian Women

Please note that all public lectures have been postponed until further notice.

Wednesday, April 15, 2020, 7:00 pm, Dalhousie University Club (Annual Dinner)

Ms. Susan Surette-Draper 

Abstract:
Mostly everyone has heard of Evangeline but what about real Acadian women? Although most historians have not given much attention to this half of the Acadian population, their lives and contributions cannot be discounted.

Inspired by her research on the subject, Susan will showcase the lives of real Acadian women, both before and after the Great Upheaval; their homes, their families, their occupations, as well as their tenacity in good and bad times.
