Noires Amériques, a series of literary conversations hosted by Rodney Saint-Éloi, is back for a second edition! This year, he will meet with Gisèle Pineau (Guadeloupe), Blaise Ndala (Ontario) and Kettly Mars (Florida).
Organized by the Centre de la francophonie des Amériques, this second edition offers a series of three free online literary meetings, on February 2, 9, and 16, 2022 at 6 pm ET. These moments of exchange aim to promote inclusion, dialogue, and to discover the richness and diversity of French-speaking literature from the American continent.
Rodney Saint-Éloi, writer and director of Éditions Mémoire d’encrier (Quebec, Canada), will lead three major interviews, giving voice to French-speaking authors of various origins living in the great territory of the Americas.
This year, he will meet with Gisèle Pineau (Guadeloupe), Blaise Ndala (Ontario) and Kettly Mars (Florida).
This project is made possible thanks to the financial support of the Ministry of International Relations and La Francophonie of Canada and in partnership with the Alliance Française of Chicago, the Quebec Delegation in Chicago, Éditions Mémoire d’encrier, and the American Association of Teachers of French.
