Each year in February, Canada celebrates Black History Month, to highlight and honour the contributions of Black people to the history of the country.
On February 22 at 8pm, the Canadian Cultural Centre invites you to a special evening on postcolonial literature, with two exceptional guests: Rodney Saint-Éloi & Paul Kawczak.
This conversation will be moderated by Darline Cothière, Director of the Maison des Journalistes in Paris and Doctor in Language Sciences. Book your seat!

Rodney Saint-Éloi went back to his past and his Haitian origins to write his most recent book, Quand il fait triste Bertha chante, published by Héloïse d’Ormesson. He is also the Director of the Canadian publisher Mémoire d’encrier, which has been committed to bringing the authenticity of the voices of its authors from various backgrounds for nearly 20 years.
Paul Kawczak delved into the history of the Congo and its colonization for his first novel, Ténèbre, which has just been published in paperback by J’ai lu. As a Frenchman living in Quebec, he is also a Publisher for La Peuplade, which has been publishing fiction, stories, poetry and translations of inspiring novels of all origins since 2006.
Looking through the lenses of Postcolonialism, their two literary approaches and their views as authors and publishers, tune into a rich and exciting discussion between two eminent literary figures.
In partnership with Mémoire d’encrier, La Peuplade & l’Association internationale des études québécoises.
