Toronto’s 25th French Book Fair

Le-Droit-de-mourir-dignementFrom November 29th to December 2nd, at the Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge St.), the Salon du livre de Toronto will be hosting its 25th edition. Close to one hundred publishers from Ontario, Québec, Manitoba, New Brunswick, France and Belgium will be represented. Workshops will be offered for students from kindergarten to grade 12.
The Toronto French Book Fair has always put the emphasis on direct contact with the authors. One of them will be Mireille Messier who has written The Branch / Ma branche préférée in Canada’s both official languages. This children’s book will now be translated in Slovenian, Dutch, Korean and Chinese. She will be the first Franco-Torontonian writer to be read in so many languages.
Our contributor Paul-François Sylvestre will launch a new book on the right to die with dignity (Le Droit de mourir dignement). It is an inventory of medically assisted dying and assisted suicide practices in Europe and America, with an emphasis on Canada’s recent legislation. In Ontario alone, there were 548 medically assisted deaths between June 17, 2016 and June 30, 2017.
