Words & music

"Ourse bleue" - "Blue Bear Woman"



On Thursday, February 6th, at 6pm, join us for a night of literature and music!

Meet Virginia, Susan, Christelle and Barbara for a thematic night
around the books "Ourse bleue" and "Blue Bear Woman", paired with live music.

The novel explores contemporary Indigenous life and the impact
on the Cree of the building of the East main dam in northern Quebec,
posited as "virgin" territory, yet which has actually been part
of the Cree traditional territory since time immemorial.
In search of her roots, Victoria takes a trip to the country
of her Cree ancestors with her companion, Daniel.
Guided by her totem, the Blue Bear, she returns home to make peace
with her soul, as well as release the soul of her Great-Uncle George,
a hunter who has been missing in the forest for over twenty years.
