Interview with Marie-Hélène Vaugeois

Interview with Marie-Hélène Vaugeois

This is the third in a series of interviews with people who are closely involved with Quebec literature on a daily basis. In the future, we’ll talk to publishers, readers, bookstore owners, and translators to get a feel for today’s publishing scene in Quebec.
