Support for Les Éditions Perce-Neige, a driving force for Acadian literature
Publisher Perce-Neige pursues its mission of spotlighting Acadian talent from 2017 to 2019 by translating a work by Sue Goyette.
Publications for a minority Francophone readership
With support from a two-year operating grant, Les Éditions Perce-Neige is promoting Acadian literary talent and disseminating local Francophone literature far and wide. Its publications from 2017 to 2019 deal primarily with Louisiana and 18th-century Acadia. A series of theatrical works by Acadian dramatists is also being created.
Translation of a book with potential for an Acadia-wide readership
Ocean, an anthology of poetry by Sue Goyette originally published in English in 2013, will become more widely known thanks to the Perce-Neige translation by Georgette Leblanc. This critically-acclaimed anthology offers nothing less than a poetic biography of the ocean.
