Francophone authors in the spotlight : Meet Marie-Josée Martin at Croisée des mots on January 19, 2022

Tuesday, January 11, 2022

Croisée des mots is back this winter! As of January 19, 2022, Croisée des mots will feature a fascinating line-up of accomplished francophone authors from or connected to the National Capital Region. Croisée des mots is a program of monthly literary meetings organized by the Ottawa Public Library in partnership with the Association des auteures et auteurs de l'Ontario français (AAOF) as well as three other public libraries: Hearst, Sudbury, and Toronto to offer Francophones and Francophiles the opportunity to meet their favorite authors and discuss their books.  

The talented Marie-Josée Martin will take you on a journey with her latest novel L’Ordre et la Doctrine on January 19 at 7 pm.  

Award winning author Marie-Josée Martin grew up in Quebec at a time when ramps were considered unusual objects. Her second novel Un jour, ils entendront mes silences (David, 2012), was awarded 4 literary prizes, one of them coming from the Ottawa Book Awards. She recently published  L’Ordre et la Doctrine (Prise de parole, 2021), first volume of the highly anticipated feminist trilogy Après Massāla. 

So, mark your calendar and sign up for this upcoming session of Croisée des mots as it promises to be a series of engaging discussions! The Library and the AAOF are honoured to host such a talented screenwriter and novelist. Join us on Wednesday January 19, 2022, at 7 pm and until then, browse the OPL collection to borrow her various titles.
