Canada's Sesquicentennial

in cooperation with

our local partners


Saskatoon, November 3rd to 6th

Scroll down for details of Stephen Leacock's visit in 1936

Because we have a full weekend in Saskatoon, we are proposing something different: A Stephen Leacock Long Weekend with four "Days", each one focussed on one part of Saskatoon's literary community. As discussions proceed we will up-date the table below.


Terminology:

A "Mariposie" is a story or other performance piece by or about Stephen Leaock.

"Talk-and-Tell" events mingle Mariposies with questions and conversation.

All events, until confirmed, are subject to change and alternative ideas.
