The Journal of Étienne Mercier

JournalofEtienneMercierENText by David Bouchard
Paintings by Gordon Miller
In 1853, Étienne Mercier, a French-Canadian voyageur painter, is tasked by his employer to return to the Queen Charlotte Islands and document his travels into Haida territory. A wide-eyed and good-natured Mercier takes the opportunity to try to track down his long-lost friend, Clément, in the wilderness of what would later become the Canadian Pacific coast.Written in Mercier’s own broken English, or Franglais, and punctuated with traditional Canadien folk songs, David Bouchard’s candid glance into the everyday tribulations of a typical voyageur vividly depicts—along with Gordon Miller’s evocative illustrations—life on the colonial frontier in the mid-nineteenth century.

One of Canada’s all-time best-selling authors and most sought-after public speakers, Métis author David Bouchard has presented to hundreds of thousands of educators, parents and students the world over. Through his keynotes and presentations, he champions literacy and promotes Indigenous culture. A former teacher and principal, Bouchard is an award-winning author of over thirty-five best selling books, published in many countries and languages.

In March 1853, Etienne Mercier, a 28-year-old explorer and trapper, is hired by the Hudson Bay Co. to explore the Queen Charlotte Islands. Mercier sets out most enthusiastically on this voyage in a canoe… Mercier scripts a journal in mesmerizing detail of words, illustrations and lyrics. His deep respect for the land, water, wildlife and the Haida Indians is present throughout.

Parvana, Une enfance en Afghanistan

Parvana une enfance en Afghanistan

Texte de Deborah Ellis

Plus de deux millions d’exemplaires de la trilogie Parvana vendus à travers le monde

Le film animé ‘Breadwinner’, la version anglaise de Parvana: Une enfance en Afghanistan, réalisé par Angelina Jolie-Pitt et dirigé par Nora Twomey, sera diffusé en 2017.

Parvana, onze ans, habite avec sa famille à Kaboul, la capitale de l’Afghanistan. Ils vivent dans une seule pièce dans un immeuble d’appartements à moitié détruit par les bombardements. Son père, qui enseignait l’histoire avant que son école soit bombardée, a subi de graves blessures. Désormais, il travaille assis sur une couverture à même le sol du marché, où il lit des lettres aux gens qui ne savent ni lire ni écrire. Un jour, on l’arrête sous prétexte qu’il a fait des études à l’étranger. La famille de Parvana se retrouve sans personne pour gagner de l’argent ou même pour aller acheter de quoi manger. Alors que les conditions de vie de la famille se détériorent, une seule solution paraît possible. Puisque les filles n’ont pas le droit de travailler, Parvana devra se déguiser en garçon pour subvenir aux besoins de sa famille.

Lorsque Deborah Ellis a entendu parler de la mainmise des Talibans sur l’Afghanistan, en 1996, et des crimes qu’ils perpétraient à l’endroit des femmes et des filles, elle a décidé d’agir.
Ce fut le début d’une aventure qui mena à la parution de la série Parvana. Aujourd’hui, la guerre se poursuit et personne ne peut prédire avec certitude qui en sortira vainqueur. Pour la population afghane, la vie continue. Des personnes comme Parvana, Shauzia et Mme Weera travaillent d’arrache-pied pour permettre aux gens de vivre une vie meilleure. Ce sont ces personnes, ainsi que de très nombreux autres Afghans – femmes, hommes et enfants —, que le monde doit soutenir.
