In Ottawa, Librairie du Soleil Received Jean-Daniel Lafond
On April 1st, 2015, in Ottawa, the Librairie du Soleil in the ByWard Market, hosted Jean-Daniel Lafond, who presented his most recent book Un désir d’Amérique, fragments nomades.
For the occasion, many regulars were on hand, in the bookstore livened by Francine and Pierre Chevrier. Equally present were friends and collaborators of the author: Franco-Ontarian writers, comedians, actors from the world of theater, academics and literature lovers. Erwan Leseul from éditions Édito-Gallimard presented Jean-Daniel Lafond, who read an excerpt from his book before embarking on a long book-signing session.
We are reproducing an excerpt of Un désir d’Amérique that Jean-Daniel Lafond read. Its message evokes, in a particularly relevant way, the spirit in which the Foundation was created, exactly five years ago.
