Suzanne Pasternak

Suzanne volunteered to work with and direct local writers and actors to produce radio plays for our New Horizons, Seniors Making Waves project.

Sadly, Suzanne passed away in September 2023.

She 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.
