Born in Toronto, she lived in New Haven, Aix-en-Provence and Paris before settling in Ottawa in 1987. She is interested in the intermingling of exterior and interior landscapes. The journey, the inner world, the dimensions of dreaming and the connection with language have enriched her creative process. Her sixth collection, Chronos à sa table de travail (Interligne), won the 2009 Ottawa Book Award.
Hosted by Hugues Beaudoin-Dumouchel, these readings will take place from 5 to 7 pm at La Nouvelle Scène’s Bistro Marcil Lavallée.
