As the Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2020, Canada will present a programme this year that reflects the diversity of the local cultural scene. We have invited 20 authors to write new and original comics and illustrated stories in German, English, French and Indigenous languages on a term that evokes very different associations and emotions in the two countries: RECONCILIATION.

Reconciliation - Roundtable

See here the video of the discussion that Catherine Emmanuel Brunet had with Burcu Türker, Julien Dallaire Charest, and Whess Harman.

Due to a technical issue the participants' cameras where activated only 15 minutes into the exchange.

Great talents are the most beautiful means of reconciliation.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
