TIFA Presents: GGBooks Finalists Explore – Remnants

November 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


TIFA Presents: GGBooks Finalists Explore – Remnants. 

What is left of someone who was not important enough to be archived? Canadian author Céline Huyghebaert’s Remnants, translated by Aleshia Jensen, is a finalist for the 2022 Governor General’s Literary Award for Translation. This dreamlike memoir is an exploration of essential questions about the value of life in its duration and passing, told through a profound investigation of a father’s life and sudden death. Join both Huyghebaert and Jensen for an insightful conversation on how we talk about what no longer exists, and about the artistic process of translating complex concepts from French to English.

Interviewer: Heidi Reitmaier
