Baraka Books to Bring Three Authors to Quebec City

Baraka Books to Bring Three Authors to Quebec City

The next date to mark on your agenda is Wednesday June 6th, 2012.

AngloStore are pleased to announce that for their author event, they’ll be working with Montreal-based publisher, Baraka Books.

Owner Robin Philpot will be bringing three of his writers to AngloStore to discuss their work.

Nick Fonda will talk about:
Principals and Other Schoolyard Bullies
Roads to Richmond
Portraits of Quebec’s Eastern Townships

Sylvain Hotte will talk about:
Break Away 1 – Jessie on My Mind &
Break Away 2 – Power Forward

Peter McCambridge (who translated the book) will talk about:
I Hate Hockey by François Barcelo

Nick Fonda is an award-winning reporter who has also wielded chalk in classrooms in Canada and the UK for more than 25 years. He has kept in touch with reality – other than the overwhelming reality of schools – by plying such trades as lumberjack, carpenter, restaurateur and raconteur.

Sylvain Hotte is an award-winning writer of fiction for young adults and children. He was born in Montreal to an Innu mother and a Québécois father and now lives in Quebec City. His first series Darhan was astoundingly successful.
Break Away 1 – Jessie on My Mind is the first book of a trilogy.
Break Away 2 – Power Forward will appear in May 2012.
Much of the action in the second book takes place in Quebec City.

François Barcelo is author of more than forty novels for adults and younger readers. A past winner of the Governor General’s Award, he was the first Quebecer published in Gallimard’s prestigious Série Noire collection.
His novel Cadavres was made into a movie in 2008.
I Hate Hockey is his first novel in English.

Peter McCambridge is a professional translator and a serious hockey fan based in Quebec City.
He has an MA in Modern Languages from Cambridge University.
His MA thesis is on the Montreal Canadiens and popular culture in Quebec.

So, the date for your agenda is Wednesday 6th June, 2012.

The evening will begin at 7.15pm and will proceed as follows:

7.15pm – Welcome and opening address
7.25pm – Nick Fonda
7.40pm – Sylvain Hotte
7.55pm – Peter McCambridge (on behalf of François Barcelo)
