Language-Professional Events in Montreal—and Across Quebec

Despite Mother Nature’s tricks, spring has sprung! Many of us will now feel like getting out of our houses after a long, cold, snowy winter. What better time to get out there and participate in events in Montreal and across the province!

Last night, I learned that an event gathering translators and authors will take place next Wednesday, 23 April, 7:00 p.m., at Café l’Artère, located near Montreal’s Parc-Extension district. The activity, “Dans la tête de l’auteur/In the Mind of the Writer,” will allow authors and translators to read their texts aloud for constructive commentary. This sounds like an interesting event, and I plan to be there. If you have Facebook, you may click here to access the event and confirm your presence.

“Dans la tête de l’auteur/In the Mind of the Writer” is one of many activities presented as part of the province’s book and copyright day, known as the Journée mondiale du livre et du droit d’auteur.

If writing and writers are your cup of tea, check out “Writers out Loud,” a year-long series showcasing writers across Quebec. The audience will not only have the opportunity to discover writers’ careers but will also learn a bit about their personal side—who they are as a human being, what their interests are, and so on. The Quebec Writers’ Federation (QWF) has mapped out several encounters between now and October, including a first activity with Guillaume Morissette next Thursday, 24 April, at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore, located in Montreal’s Plateau-Mont-Royal borough. Encounters are planned in other areas of the province, including the Montérégie, the Eastern Townships, and the Greater Quebec City area.

Do you like listening to music and words at the same time? If so, you’ll love QWF’s “Words and Music,” an event that marries music and words the third Sunday evening of each month. All activities take place at Casa del Popolo, 4873 St. Laurent Boulevard, at 9:00 p.m. Doors open at 8:00 p.m.

Whatever your language professional stripes, there’s something for everyone to enjoy during these events. I’ll be sure to post others on my blog if I hear of anything through the grapevine.

Do you know of any language-professional event that will take place in your neck of the woods? If so, leave a comment after this post, and I’ll be sure to include it in future entries.

Have a wonderful language-filled spring! And since I’m writing, I wish all of you a Happy Easter!
