Saison 1

2. S1 – Change and Transformation

DISPONIBLE SUR LE WEB POUR :  9 semaines  9 sem.

Transformation, evolution, revolution; how do writers capture moments of change? This week's guests discuss two crucial and under-told moments in Montreal's history. A new nonfiction book brings forward diverse perspectives on the Sir George Williams Affair, the 1969 protest action by West Indian students fighting institutional discrimination. The students' occupation of the computer lab at what's now Concordia University ended with a fire that forced them from the building. Fire is also a force of change in a critically acclaimed book of short stories, one of which reimagines the life and status of Marie-Joseph Angélique, an enslaved Black woman who was executed after being convicted of setting a fire that razed Old Montreal in 1734.

Invité(es) : Kaie Kellough, Author Nalini Mohabir, Co-editor, The Fire That Time Rebecca Lloyd, Director, Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore Piedad Saenz, Children Bookseller, Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore
