Les Editions des Plaines is one of my primary publishers. For the past four years, they have invited me to Paris (and to Montreal) for the two largest book fairs in the world. Vicki and Victoria always accompany me on internation tours.
The French and Europeans in general are enamoured by Aboriginal culture. That Western Canadians speak French is shocking to many. They seem to enjoy my accent as well as my books.
We spent four days working in the Salon du Livre and are into our final two days of enjoying Paris. We travel home to reality tomorrow and that reality is not too shabby!
Pictured here are two good friends and my publisher, our wonderful friend Huguette...standing in front of me. Merci tellement Hugutte! XO
