Chaque année, BookFest Windsor propose un panel sur la traduction et les livres francophones. En 2013, BookFest Windsor a coparrainé un événement avec le Humanities Research Group de l’Université de Windsor. Dany Laferrière, en conversation avec David Homel, a présenté en français à un public majoritairement francophone sa passion pour l’écriture et pour sa terre natale, Haïti. La comparution de M. Laferrière était en partie parrainée par l’Association des traducteurs littéraires du Canada (ALTAC). En 2014, nous avons travaillé avec l’Association canadienne française de l’Ontario (ACFO WECK) pour amener Louis Hamelin au Théâtre Capitol. En tant que chef de file de sa francophonie régionale, ACFO WECK assure l’épanouissement des francophones et francophiles, les réfère et les rassemble afin d’assurer les liens entre les secteurs et la promotion des services en français. C’est avec grand plaisir que BookFest Windsor collabore avec ACFO WECK afin de développer la section francophone du Festival.

Depuis 2018, notre programmation francophone s’est considérablement élargie avec le parrainage du Conseil Scolaire Catholique Providence et du Conseil Scolaire Viamonde.

Every year, BookFest Windsor features a panel on translation and francophone books. In 2013, BookFest Windsor co-sponsored an event with the Humanities Research Group at the University of Windsor. Dany Laferriere, in conversation with David Homel, presented in French to a mainly Francophone audience about his passion for writing and for his native land, Haiti. M. Laferriere’s appearance was partially sponsored by The Association of Literary Translators of Canada (LTAC). In 2014, we worked with l’Association canadienne française de l’Ontario (ACFO WECK) to bring Louis Hamelin to the Capitol Theatre. As a leader in its regional francophonie, ACFO WECK ensures the blossoming of francophones and francophiles, refers and gathers them in order to assure links between sectors and the promotion of French services. It is with great pleasure that BookFest Windsor is collaborating with ACFO WECK in order to develop the francophone section of the Festival.

Since 2018, our francophone programming is greatly expanded with the sponsorship of Conseil Scolaire Catholique Providence and Conseil Scholaire Viamonde.
