A Tribute to Peg Hasted, June 5, 1961 - October 17, 2015

Storyteller, Peg Hasted, loved folktales and fairy tales but she searched her cultural roots to understand her storytelling background. Her family came from a number of European countries including Ireland, Scotland and England, but she was many generations Canadian; born and raised on the west coast of Vancouver Island and it was to that heritage that she was most drawn.
