Last week we had the pleasure of hosting a book launch and reading at the store for the newly published English translations of works by Nicole Brossard and Jocelyne Saucier.
Jocelyn Saucier discussing the difficulties of translating the culture underlying a language. Pictured here are Rhonda Mullins (translator of Saucier's And the Birds Rained Down and host for the evening), Katia Grubisic (who read from the English translation of Brossard's works), Nicole Brossard, Jocelyne Saucier and Gillian Sze (who read from the English translation of Saucier's book).
A beautiful bilingual reading of Brossard's poems.
It was cold, wet and snowy outside that night but nice and cosy at the store!
White Piano by Nicole Brossard and And the Birds Rained Down by Jocelyn Saucier, available here at the bookstore.
