Book Launch/Performance Excerpts: Minerva by Suzanne Pasternak

With Tom Leighton, keyboard, Jenica Hammett, singer, and Sandra Lean-Leighton, reader.

 

Join us for the book launch, reading, and concert celebrating Suzanne Pasternak’s new book Minerva, a dramatic and true cross border story that tells the tale of a young 17-year-old ship’s cook from 1878. Minerva McCrimmon was a famous heroine in both Oswego, New York and Prince Edward County, in Canada.  The evening includes a reading of the story, and excerpts from Suzanne Pasternak’s folk opera Minerva. Suzanne is joined by Tom Leighton, keyboard, Jenica Hammett, singer and Sandra Lean-Leighton, reader.

 

Multi-talented Suzanne Pasternak is a singer, songwriter, performing and recording artist, author, producer, storyteller, lecturer, folklorist, marine historian, writer and documentary filmmaker.

Suzanne has spent over 33 years collecting oral histories in the field, filming and photo-documenting her subjects. Her focus has been in Eastern Ontario, Canada and the various islands in Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. This work led her to create historically-based folk operas, musicals, plays, 3 books, 2 documentaries and 2 albums. Suzanne also has a lecture series that she presents regionally.
