The Poetry of the Coast - La patience du lichen

Updated: Apr 17, 2023

CFBS NEWS BLANC-SABLON - MARCH 12, 2021 - La Patience du Lichen by Noémie Pomerleau-Cloutier

Far away on the north coast of the Gulf of St. Lawrence there is a road sign in the middle of the road with the word END: the traveler must stop at this place. However, beyond the limit of the asphalt, there are several hundred kilometers of communities that are accessible only by air, water or ice, depending on the season. We know it well, this is a part of the Lower North Shore.

Fascinated since her childhood by the end of Route 138, Noémie Pomerleau-Cloutier came to meet us Coasters and recorded our voices to remake poetry from these fragmented territories and our struggles. La patience du lichen is a poetic testimony of rare scope, a report with a big heart that delves into the history and intimacy of our little-known part of Quebec.
