The Journals of Susanna Moodie

Past Exhibition

“In most instances, emigration is a matter of necessity, not choice” - Susanna Moodie

Renowned writer Margaret Atwood and iconic artist Charles Pachter’s captivating collaboration, “The Journals of Susanna Moodie,” prompt new insight into the experiences of early settlers and today’s newcomers. Atwood’s lucid and lyrical poems are directly inspired by Moodie’s journal entries, while Pachter’s illustrations are expressive visual interpretations of Atwood’s stirring poetry. The exhibition includes thirty original prints with poems on loan from the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
