Louise Penny, author of the award-winning series of murder mysteries featuring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, will join ELAN for the first online Author Conversations episode of “We’re All In This Together.”


The English Language Arts Network (ELAN) recently announced that New York Timesbestselling author Louise Penny will join them for their first online Author Conversations episode of “We’re All In This Together” on Feb. 12 at 6 p.m.   

This rare interview with one of Quebec’s most famous writers is sure to bring comfort and smiles to all viewers. Audience members are asked to post their questions for Penny on ELAN’s Facebook page (We’re All In This Together Quebec) and organizers will ask as many of them as possible.

The “We’re All In This Together” program is part of a collaboration between ELAN and Seniors Action Quebec, a community initiative to reach Quebec’s English-speaking seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each bi-weekly episode of the 18-episode web series, directed by award-winning Montreal-based filmmaker Bobbi Jo Hart, features entertainment, activities and conversations designed to connect with those in need of support and empathy with a gentle reminder that we are, indeed, all in this together. 

Episodes released so far are available for anyone to enjoy on YouTube (search “We’re All In This Together Senior Web Series”) and Facebook (search “WereAllInThisTogetherQuebec”).  


Seniors Action Quebec works to maintain and enhance the vitality of English-speaking Quebec seniors. All efforts are being made to identify and address challenges and issues to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for English-speaking seniors.

The English Language Arts Network is a meeting place for English-language artists and cultural workers of all disciplines from every region of Quebec, where they can share expertise and resources, build audiences and alliances, seek support, advocate for their interests, and make common cause with the francophone arts community.
