Town Cat and Country Mouse... in Clarenville!

On the evening of Wednesday, March 4th, I was invited to give an address on intangible cultural heritage for the Clarenville Heritage Society’s annual general meeting. I started off with a folktale about names and naming that I had learned from a past resident of the area, and spoke on the folklore of naming and some of the possible origins of the name “Clarenville” itself.

You can listen to the folktale "Town Cat and Country Mouse" and the rest of the address here.
