The Espace culturel Inuit, in collaboration with the Canadian Cultural Centre, is pleased to invite you to attend the launch of Michèle Therrien‘s book “Les Inuit” recently published by Les Belles Lettres, in the collection Belles Lettres des civilisations.
Monday, January 14, 2013 at 6:00 pm sharp, at the Canadian Cultural Centre, in the presence of the author and Les Belles Lettres.
Reception of the participants from 5:30 pm – Presentation of the book by Michèle Therrien – Signature of the author – Glass of friendship with tasting of Inuit infusions
Openness to the unexpected, attachment to the natural environment, quality of interpersonal relationships, sharing, humour, these are some of the keys to better understanding what Inuit have to say about their history, their society, their place in the world, the future, climate change and industrial development. The voices that reach us from Alaska, the Canadian Arctic and Greenland reveal a contemporary civilization whose richness we do not suspect.
