We invite you to celebrate language and literature at a multilingual reading on February 24, 2023. You’ll have an opportunity to meet renowned Acadian writers Jean Babineau, Herménégilde Chiasson, Dyane Léger, and others. Readings in French from their recent work will be accompanied by brand-new translations created by participants in a literary translation workshop. An open mic for writers and translators who work in a variety of languages will follow. To register for the workshop (February 16) or to read at the open mic (February 24), please contact us at
