The Immortal Dany Laferrière

In April, we published a wonderfully long and in-depth interview with Dany Laferrière conducted in French by Salon .ll. editor Annie Heminway. We're reprinting this today to honour now "immortal" Dany Laferrière, who has just been admitted to the Académie française.

Here's the link to the interview.

From Ruth Gruenthal: Emma Bovary, Bourgeois Heroine

It is one of my principles that one must not write about oneself. The artist should be like God in creation, invisible and all-powerful; so that one can feel him everywhere, but see him not at all.  -- Gustave Flaubert

The Decision to Publish in French, Part I, by Linda Leith


Abou Farman's Clerks of the Passage is one of seven books LLP published in its launch year, 2012.

In September 2014, LLP embarked on a process that has led, one year later, to the decision to publish books in French as well as English.

The first step was a grant application to the Canada Council, in which we made a committment to disseminate the results of the process. This three-part article was submitted in slightly different form to the agency in September 2015 as part of our final report to the Leadership for Change program. 

This is Part I of a three-part text. Part II is here.

We are all Torontonians: Philistines and the Battle for Public Libraries

The Toronto battle has not yet made its mark nationally, but it should. If Toronto library users and supporters lose this fight, you can depend on it that other municipalities will be encouraged to follow suit. I am a Montrealer, not a Torontonian, but I know this is my battle, too. And I think it’s a battle we should all be fighting.

When it comes to the future of public libraries, we are all Torontonians.
