Launching the book BREF!

To highlight the Canadian Confederation's 150th anniversary, the Collectif post-néo-rieliste under the direction of author Charles LeBlanc is launching BREF !, a collection of 150 short stories with 150 words each written by French-Canadian authors. Among the 62 authors included in the book are: Sébastien Bérubé, Marie-Claire Chiasson, Gabriel Chiasson and Pierre-André Doucet.

Les Éditions du Blé, the first Francophone publishing house in Western Canada are launching BREF ! on December 7 2017 in nearly a dozen cities across Canada. In Moncton, the launch will take place through a partnership between the Alliance Française and the Frye Festival on Thursday, December 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Alliance Française (100 Cameron street, 2nd floor). The event will take place in French.


It makes a difference to donate to the Frye Festival on #GivingTuesday!

The Frye Festival exists to feed imaginations and to celebrate reading and writing by connecting authors with our bilingual community. By inviting award-winning authors, the best new voices in Canadian literature and talented international writers, the Festival creates opportunities to discover books, share ideas and build the imagination.

We are proud to create contexts for learning and creativity with readers and writers of all ages in our great bilingual community.

In April 2018, we will:

Organize about 120 visits in schools, daycares and community centres all over New Brunswick at absolutely no cost

Distribute nearly $3,500 worth of books in schools and the community

Celebrate the literary talents of 230 youth through our Imagination at Work, Budding Writers and Café Underground events

Offer cash prizes and free half-day writing workshops with Festival authors for the winners of our Provincial Creative Writing Contest

Give Frye Academy IV members the chance to meet the author whose book was a favourite of the jury of bilingual high school students

The Frye Festival is a registered charity. We count on support from generous donors every year to make our programs happen. Please consider donating online—it only takes a few minutes. Thank you for your support!
