Make sure to log on to YouTube or Facebook this Friday, September 24 at 6 p.m. for the launch of Episode 21: Author Conversations with Richard King. Starting at his home on the Lachine Canal exploring King’s origins and evolution as a mystery writer, the episode also visits frontline ER nurse Margaret Quinsey, who inspired the main character of his book series that began with A Stab At Life.

It’s an intimate and personal look at how art truly does imitate life for this iconic Quebec writer. To watch a promotional clip of the next episode, click here!

We’re All In This Together, the Web Series for Seniors is a collaboration between the English Language Arts Network and Seniors Action Quebec, and a community initiative to reach Quebec’s English-speaking seniors. This one-of-a-kind web-series has been designed by seniors, especially for seniors.

Each bi-weekly episode is directed by Montreal-based, award-winning filmmaker Bobbi Jo Hart and features entertainment, activities and conversations designed to connect with those in need of support and empathy… with a gentle reminder that we are, indeed, all in this together. Episodes released so far can easily be found on YouTube (Search keys words “We’re All In This Together Senior Web Series”) and Facebook (Search “WereAllInThisTogetherQuebec”), and are available for anyone to enjoy.

This is also a great opportunity to take a moment to assure that the seniors around you are able to access the internet, so that they are able to take advantage of all the online resources available to them.

The English Language Arts Network (ELAN) is a meeting place for English-language artists and cultural workers of all disciplines from every region of Quebec, where they can share expertise and resources, build audiences and alliances, seek support, advocate for their interests, and make common cause with the Francophone arts community.

Seniors Action Quebec works to maintain and enhance the vitality of English-speaking Quebec seniors. All efforts will identify and address challenges and issues to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for English-speaking seniors.

The groups acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada and the Government of Quebec.
