The Canadian Cultural Centre invites you to a conversation on the stories and voices of two Indigenous women: a crossover between Innu author Carole Labarre and Cree Métis author and painter Virginia Pésémapeo Bordeleau.

Carole Labarre draws her inspiration from the history of her community. Through her writing and poetry, she seeks to sublimate her culture and give a voice to the Elders. Her first novel, L’or des mélèzes (Mémoire d’encrier, 2023) is a series of written portraits, captured moments and luminous snapshots about the history of her community, her family and her elder Pishimuss. 

Virginia Pésémapeo Bordeleau has created a moving body of work in which family, territory, mythical animals, plants and rocks form an organic world, charged with a constantly renewed energy: powerful, tender and luminous books that are also about encounters, otherness, desire and the future.

The discussion will be hosted by Marie Jouvin, journalist (Lire Magazine) and founder of the blog Trouble Bibliomane. A book-selling and signing session will follow with the Librairie du Québec in Paris.

In partnership with Mémoire d’encrier and in conjunction with the Festival Paroles Autochtones in Nantes.
