The St. Boniface Cathedral

EnglishCathedralWebCover

Authors: Gaboury – Therrien – Grandmaison

The St. Boniface Cathedral coffee-table book, part of the Manitoba CountryScapes series, chronicles the history of St. Boniface’s six churches and cathedrals since the Mission was founded in 1818. The contemporary photos by award-winning photographer Michel (Mike) Grandmaison complete the archive pictures and history presented by author Joanne Therrien.

“The memory of the Cathedral ruins after the fire is still vivid in my mind,” says book co-author and architect of the current cathedral, Étienne Gaboury. “…despite the ravages of the fire, the Cathedral was still there, imposing and majestic.” In The St. Boniface Cathedral, Étienne Gaboury focuses on the architectural and spiritual elements that make the Cathedral a unique landmark in Western Canada.

Finutilité

Finutilité de Daniel LavoieAn essay by Daniel Lavoie

Published November 16, 2011

Book fairs, signings and events

La finutilité m’habite…

Pourquoi ceci me diras-tu?

Pour la poésie du futile, la beauté de l’éphémère…

Pour la beauté infinie de la tristesse.

Pour moi pour toi qui sommes à la fois rien, à la fois tout.

Daniel Lavoie

With Finutilité, from the infinite to the futile and the fleeting, Daniel Lavoie pens his first literary work. This collection contains moments of perception, reflections on contradictions along with revelations about life. Whether he is being provocative or appeasing, Daniel Lavoie says it with passion, humour and sensitivity.

In Finutilité, Daniel Lavoie offers texts full of textures and shifting images he gathered up through his peregrinations. Serious and humorous matters are juxtaposed, sugar is blended in with salt, various shades of red are intertwined, a deep sense of irony is grafted onto a lovely lightness of being. It is a nod to the tragic side of modern life as well as to its more playful side. The book seeks to be provocative at times, appeasing at others. There are moments of perception, of reflections on the most troubling aspects of life, on its contradictions as well as its revelations. It is a book that was written by someone who has spent a great deal of time observing, who feels things deeply and shares it with humour and le mot juste.

La guerre du cochon

La guerre du cochonA historical account
By Nadine Mackenzie

History has shown us that wars have been started for a myriad of different reasons. And in 1859 an American settler’s assassination of a somewhat gluttonous British pig was all it took to set off a conflict between the two countries. It then became necessary to settle the thorny issue of just who owned the tiny island of San Juan off Vancouver Island in British Columbia, an issue that was left hazy in the Oregon Treaty of 1846 determining the Canadian-American border for the western half of the continent.

J’ai fait ma chance

l978289611056811 Annette Saint-Pierre

Autobiographie

Lancement officiel le dimanche 7 novembre 2010 à Saint-Boniface

« Reprendre les mailles de mon cheminement m’a permis d’éveiller ma conscience à la sagesse de la vie, à ses joies qui débusquent les souffrances et à ses lumières qui ensoleillent les routes. Ce fut un véritable exutoire, même si l’exercice devait me révéler quelques moments pénibles. En revivant les bonheurs et les peines du trajet accompli, j’y ai vu mon évolution en filigrane. En tentant de me réaliser, j’ai fait ma chance. Oui, j’ai fait ma chance, à l’heure où l’esprit et le coeur choisissaient les sentiers qui projetaient le plus de lumière. Une mauvaise décision… et ma vie aurait été tout autre. »

Au pays de Gabrielle Roy

saint_pierre_pays_gr

essai biographique d’Annette Saint-Pierre
Prix Margaret-McWilliams, mention 2006

Avec le souvenir du regard scintillant de Gabrielle Roy, Annette Saint-Pierre nous invite à parcourir le destin de l’une des figures les plus marquantes de la littérature canadienne. Au pays de Gabrielle Roy se présente moins dans les détails de la vie et de l’oeuvre de Gabrielle, dont plus d’un biographe ont déjà fait état, mais dans la richesse de la vie familiale et de la maison natale dans laquelle l’auteur de Bonheur d’occasion a évolué. De la Montagne Pembina à   Saint-Boniface, jusqu’à l’exode et le devenir de chacun de ses frères et soeurs, ce livre clef d’une grande érudition dévoile une Gabrielle Roy inconnue — lettres inédites à l’appui — au coeur de son intimité.
