It’s been 70 years since Hugh McLennan’s classic novel Two Solitudes was published, and there are signs that one of Canada’s most challenging dichotomies—the divide between French and English—is finally beginning to fade as English readers discover a new wave of Québec storytellers. Join us for a look at three of the country’s most acclaimed French-language authors, now available in English translation.

Samuel Archibald’s debut collection of short fiction, Arvida, won Quebec’s Prix Des Libraries and Prix Coup de Coeur Renaud-Bray; author and playwright, Larry Tremblay , a three-time finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award, is the author of The Orange Grove, and; Kim Thuy’s Mãn follows the Giller Prize-nominated and Governor General’s Literary Award-winning success of her debut novel Ru.

 

This event is organized in collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts to mark the 2015 edition of the Governor General’s Literary Awards.
