I have the privilege of launching my new collection of short stories in French, Ce que l’on divulgue (What we reveal), at the Toronto French Book Fair this weekend.
This short collection of stories is a study of upheaval and change – sometimes good, sometimes bad – in which characters must face a stranger, a revelation, or even a new lifesyle.
WHAT: Ce que l’on divulgue book launch
WHEN: Saturday, December 7, 3 p.m.
WHERE: Toronto French Book Fair, Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street, 2nd floor, Bram and Bluma Appel Salon, Radio-Canada Stage
The book is on sale for $10 for the month of December, and returns to the original price of $11.49 in January. You can get a copy at the book fair on Saturday, you can order it online through Amazon, or you can drop me a line and I’ll arrange for a signed copy to get to you.
I am excited to share that I have been invited to participate in the Toronto French Book Fair this year, as an emerging writer. I will be participating in a roundtable discussion on « How I wrote my first book », with poets Sonia Lamontagne and Daniel Groleau Landry.
Details about the French Book Fair (le Salon du livre de Toronto), which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, can be found here (French only).
Additionally, a local paper mentions my participation at the Book Fair and names me one of « Franco-Ontario literary grassroots authors » (auteur du terroir littéraire franco-ontarien). The article is here (French only).
I’m looking forward to sharing both in person on December 8th and online afterwards, how this experience is colouring my writing process.
