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-Thé Morin will take you on a journey with her latest novel Errances on September 15 at 7 pm.
