LITERARY ENCOUNTER – “THE SEARCH FOR HEINRICH SCHLÖGEL’’: MUSIC AND POST CARDS
Martha Baillie, a Canadian novelist, will discuss her latest book published by Actes Sud: The Search for Heinrich Schlögel, accompanied by Sophie Perceval, journalist and cultural entrepreneur and the novel`s translator, Paule Noyart, three-time winner of the Governor General’s Literary Award for her translations.
The novel is at once an investigation, travel journal and a reflection on colonization, leading the reader into a world where the boundaries between reality and fantasy are unclear. Canadian composer, Nic Gotham, wrote a piece inspired by this literary work. Rick Sacks (percussion), Jonno Lightstone (clarinet), Stephen Clarke (piano) and Anne Bourne (cello) will interpret Gotham’s work for this occasion, blending music, literary, fantasy, and self-discovery.
