An in person book launch will take place on Sunday, September 12, at 1 p.m. at the Chelsea Pub (238 Chemin Old Chelsea, Chelsea, QC J9B 1J3). This event will only happen if COVID-19 Public Health measures allows it. Register for the event to be held on September 12 (in person book launch).
The book 'Voyages en nostalgie' explores a body of cultural and artistic productions chosen for their evocative power and ability to trigger, through reading, music, ads, television fiction, films, and video games, memories of special moments. If our very existence is built on meeting people in the flesh, it is also shaped by countless virtual interactions, mediatized by the artistic creations their authors bring to our attention. It is through these creations that we build our identity. We learn to live and know ourselves through different views of the world. This book is published in French. We look forward to seeing you there!
This event will be held in French but questions can be asked in English.
