Simenon in Montreal

If you're in Montreal next weekend, join me in discussing the work of Simenon over lunch, part of the 2012 Blue Metropolis Montreal International Literary Festival. You don't even have to know that much about Simenon. He's dead, so he won't be there to say you're wrong.

Whether Maigret is your all-time favourite detective, or you've fallen hard (as I have) for Simenon's romans durs, if you've only ever seen Monsieur Hire, or if you think Simenon was a misogynist pig, or even if you've never read a word by Simenon and just want to see what the fuss is about...

Lunch is at noon on Sunday, April 22, 2012, in the Koko Restuarant of the OPUS Hotel on Sherbrooke. The event is free, but you're expected to buy a lunch. Email Irène Raparison to reserve a spot.
