Michèle Laframboise's YA novel La quête de Chaaas nominated for prestigious Trillium Award

La quête de Chaaas by Michèle Laframboise is among the 17 books nominated this year for the prestigious Trillium awards. Organized by the Société de développement de l’industrie des médias de l’Ontario (SODIMO), those awards emphasize the vitality of literature in Ontario.

La quête de Chaaas (Chaaas’ Quest) explores in depth the life of an adolescent struggling to find his own way in an alien civilization of super-gardeners. Robbed of the fruit of his quest and left to die of cold in the northern desert, Chaaas resolves to find the culprit. But a grain of chance mingles in his plans...

On June 15th, Michèle will be at a public lecture at the Harbourfront, in Toronto. The award ceremony will be held on the next day.
