CAFÉ QUÉBEC – JE ME SOUVIENS
Four poets from Canada share their journey between the Two Solitudes
I am writing to invite you to an event taking place on Saturday, April 10 at 13:45 (Montreal time) as part of the California-based Sierra Poetry Festival. “Café Québec: Je me souviens” will feature poets Carolyn Marie Souaid, Hélène Dorion, Alain Cuerrier and me, who will share our journey between the “Two Solitudes” in Canada.
We will be reading in French and English and discussing the significance of the phrase “Je me souviens” and the topic of writing in English (as a minority in Quebec but part of the majority in North America) and writing in French (as part of the majority in the province but a minority in North America).
Registration for our and other events is FREE. Visit the website for details on how to register. And please feel free to share this invitation widely with your colleagues and students.
Looking forward to seeing you in California!
