I’m pleased to be included in a diverse group of Franco-American writers and performers appearing at this year’s conference of the American Council for Québec Studies (ACQS) in Portland, Maine. This biennial conference brings together Québec scholars from around North America, and organizers saw hosting this year’s gathering in Maine as an opportunity to draw attention to New England’s quebecois diaspora.
I’ll present a short excerpt from Piecework: When We Were French. Also presenting: fiction writers Norman Beaupré, Ernest Hebert, and Elizabeth Kadetsky, writer and solo performer Susan Poulin, Massachusetts poet Steven Riel, and University of Maine faculty members Jane Martin and Rhea Côté Robbins.
If you happen to be in Portland on November 5th, come see us at the Westin Harborview Hotel and join in the conversation. For more information, visit the Facebook event page.
