On May 14th at 7pm, join us for a Facebook Watch Party for an exclusive literary encounter.
Discover the legend of Wendigo with Indigenous author and poet from 🇨🇦 David Groulx and his translator Éric Charlebois.
Presentation and reading of the novel The Windigo Chronicles, a tale revisiting this mythical figure of the Algonquin people.
Born in the mining town of Elliot Lake in northern Ontario to an Ojibway mother and a French-Canadian father, David Groulx brings his Indigenous roots to life in his work. A decisive encounter with Éric Charlebois took place during the Trois-Rivières Poetry Festival in 2014. After Sans pitié, The Windigo Chronicles is their second collaboration.
Éric Charlebois is a poet and entrepreneur. He has published more than a dozen collections of poetry, has won three literary awards – including two Trillium Poetry Awards – and is recognized as an important figure in the Franco-Ontarian literary community. A tireless worker, he is writing his master’s thesis in literary translation and is active in business development and arts outreach.
