Library and Archives Canada invites you to the launch of Chemin faisant : rencontres avec douze personnalités inspirantes, a book by Paule des Rivières and Raynald Petit, on Wednesday, October 26 at 5:30 p.m., in the Pellan Room at 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa.

The presentation will be in French only.

Inspiring stories

The individuals encountered in this book—Alanis Obomsawin, André Chagnon, Antonine Maillet, Claude Castonguay, Clémence Desrochers, Edgar Fruitier, Fernand Ouellette, Françoise Sullivan, Gabor Szilasi, Gretta Chambers, Guy Rocher and Janine Gagnon-Corbeil—are all over 80 years old. You probably admire one or more of them already. Each has left a mark on our society, and each remains, in his or her own way, a source of inspiration. While they have made some sacrifices, they are still passionate about life and engaged in projects large and small. In this book, they speak frankly about what is most important to them.

Renowned lifestyle photographer Gabor Szilasi has also produced eloquent portraits of the dozen interviewees.
