To celebrate « August 12 - Buy a Quebec Book Day », in collaboration with NDG Arts, we invite you to join us for two literary talks with local NDG authors who specialize in genre fiction!
5pm-6pm : Meet authors Michelle Franklin and Su J Sokol to learn about their perspectives on speculative fiction (such as science fiction and fantasy), and learn how they create different worlds full of magic and wonders that can help us to find ways of improving our own reality. (In English)
6:30pm-7:30pm : Join Marie-Eve Bourassa and Catherine Côté to learn the secrets of crime fiction writing, as they discuss how they researched and wrote their own detective mystery novels that are set in various periods of Montreal’s history! (In French)
