Our Stories uses a wide spectrum of strange and surprising genres and mediums to focus on the experiences, characters, contributions, and spirit that Townshippers – the English-speaking community of Quebec’s historical Eastern Townships – have had on the fabric of Canada. 

Produced and printed in the Eastern Townships, the finished book is 130 pages long and features a collection of 26 stories poems, prose and letters, and more than 35 illustrations, submitted by members of the region’s English-speaking community and from individuals across the country with a connection to the community.

Proceeds from the sale will be reinjected into the Association’s Townships Expressions initiative which gives local English-speaking artists a way to promote and sell their works.

Townshippers’ Association produced Our Stories to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, the project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada and the Roadmap for Canada’s Official Languages 2013-2018: Education, Immigration, Communities.

The community-created digital anthology is also available in two other formats. A limited edition Our Stories flash drive ($10), preloaded with the ebook, can be purchased at either of Townshippers’ offices or online, and a digital copy, with a donation of any amount to the Association, can be downloaded by visiting www.Townshippers.org/Canada150.
