The France-Quebec Prize reveals its three finalists
The France-Quebec literary prize on Tuesday unveiled its three finalist novels: Sauvagines , by Gabrielle Filteau-Chiba, Ta mort à moi , by David Goudreault and Kukum , by Michel Jean.
The jury had to choose from a list of eight titles that had been announced last December, including the novel Rang de la croix by Katia Gagnon; The Death of the King , by Gabrielle Lisa Collard; Tempêtes , by Andrée A. Michaud; The Mammoth , by Pierre Samson and The appearance of the deer , by Élise Turcotte.
The France-Quebec Literary Prize has been awarded annually since 1998 by the France-Quebec association in order to promote and promote Quebec literature to French readers. The winner will be announced in November, following a popular vote.
Matthieu Simard won it last year for Les Écrivements . However, he was unable to benefit from the promotional tour accompanying the price, which was canceled due to COVID-19.
