Susan Poulin, once selected by Portland Magazine as one of the “Ten Most Intriguing People In Maine,” is the creative force behind the popular stage personality Ida LeClair. Poulin has been a leader in bringing a female voice to New England storytelling and humor, a genre historically dominated by men such as “Bert and I” and Tim Sample. She has produced five stage shows featuring Ida: “Ida: Woman Who Runs with the Moose,” “Ida’s Havin’ a Yard Sale,” “A Very Ida Christmas,” “The Moose in Me, the Moose in You,” and her latest, “I Married an Alien,” and writes the popular Maine humor blog, Just Ask Ida. Poulin is the author of Finding Your Inner Moose: Ida LeClair’s Guide to Livin’ the Good Life.
