Alexandra Bridge Boardwalk A river of words - Opening Ceremony


About thirty authors from the l’Association des auteurs de l’Outaouais and from the Association des auteurs de l’Ontario français will meet on the boardwalk of the Alexandra bridge to write an original work raising thirty or so authorial voices on the theme of 150 years of reading. The challenge behind the task is in its form as the writers each work their contributions based on what a colleague has written just before. The first author will set the tone with a two line offering. Then the second will add a couple of lines pursuing that theme. The next writer will step up and so on. Everyone is invited to a 5 à 7 at the Ou Quoi for a reading of the text.
