#FrancophonieWeek2019 | Tête-à-Tête with Frédérick Lavoie (Canadian Author & Journalist) | 20th March, 4pm

Talk on “2+2 = 4 : Literary Journalism as a Second Draft of History”

by Frédérick Lavoie

In partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Mumbai, we present a talk rendered by the international freelance journalist and nonfiction writer Frédérick Lavoie. As a reporter, he works on the ground, establishes facts, and chronicles events. Then, as a writer, he transforms his investigations into books in which he recounts the complexities of the human experience. The lecture will offer insights into his practice and discuss literary journalism as a tool of resistance to fake news, to alternative facts, and to all those trying to make us believe that two and two make five.
