Dear Readers,

Great News! The Montreal book fair alias Salon du livre de Montreal in french is officially open at Place Bonaventure in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The event will run from November 19 -24th 2014.

This event is a huge yearly extravaganza where various activities are held during the week. Readers will be able to buy books, visit expositions and the booth of the biggest publishing house in our area. You could also attend round tables, interviews and book signings. If you have children, you will be delighted to know that there is a whole section on children literature and books. I am afraid you will not find a lot african authors down there. Maybe one or two. That’s been my experience with this event so far.

Please note that this is a francophone event. No english. But don’t loose hope, if you are around in the spring, you can always attend the Metropolis blue event, which is an international event.
