Acadians Return to France. New Beginnings?

February 15, 2018 (12:00 pm - 1:00 pm)

Location: Acadia University Art Gallery

After the deportations of the Acadians, beginning in 1755, Acadian families were scattered. Some eventually reached France. Susan Surette-Draper will animate her talk with photos from her 2016 visit to France and delve into the lives, attempts at settlement and migrations of the Acadian people once they reached France.

This free Lunchtime Learning Series event is free to the public, students, faculty, and staff. For more information about Acadia Lifelong Learning events and courses, please visit our website.

Susan Surette-Draper is the President of Les Amis de Grand-Pré and author of the blog travelswithsuze. Susan explores Acadian history and the landscapes that inform it.
