A Québec writer of Vietnamese origin, Kim Thúy invites you to come and learn more about her writing process. Why does she write? Because, as she explains it, I wish to share the beauty of what I see. First, the beauty of words, but also the beauty of ‘us’, of we humans. It’s true that sometimes I talk about difficult, horrible, even atrocious situations, but at the same time, it’s in extreme situations that we find heroes. It’s also true that humans are the ones who create these situations, but I believe that too often we forget to talk about our beauty as human beings. When I write, it’s really to pay tribute to this beauty.”

This activity is made possible thanks to financial support from the Québec government, under the cultural development agreement.
