This is the weekend of the MONTREAL FRENCH BOOK FAIR 2014 and thousands of readers will meet their favorite authors.
Thoses authors includes international stars as Kathy Reichs and Ken Follett as well as Quebec stars such Denis Monette, Roxanne Bouchard, Jacques Languirand or leading journalists like Jean-Francois Lepine, Fabrice De Pierrebourg and Chantal Hébert or politicians like Justin Trudeau and Mélanie Joly. There are also several artists including Edith Butler.
Of the thousands of authors at the Montreal Book Fair 2014, dozens will have lineup of hundreds of readers who would want a signature. But for others, it’s a humbling experience described by journalist Marie Claude Ducas in a text published in Le Journal de Montreal (Saturday, November 22 “in Author Book Fair … it look like?”).
But all authors have one thing in common: a passion for their work and writing.
Among the less stars authors, I chose to photograph Catherine Bourgault, a young writer mother of three who publishes a series like “Cheek Lit.” She has two books at the 2014 Fair: Le Club des Girls et Sortie de filles.
All major media are also present and several will present live discussion tables.
In all, more than 100,000 visitors are expected and more than 1,000 publishers and 1,500 authors francophones are on site. This is the 37th edition of this annual Montreal event, which runs from November 19 to 24 at Place Bonaventure. A privileged and unique opportunity to select Christmas gifts, an event that will be here in less than a month…
Unfortunately my friend Gérard Depardieu did not make the trip to Montreal for the Salon but I continue to adore his book and I consider it to be the best book of 2014! This is the book that I will offer for Christmas and it is available at the show (booth XO Editions – ADP section).
Have a good Book Fair and happy reading!
