2023’s One eRead Canada initiative is Tatouine by Jean-Christophe Réhel, translated by Katherine Hastings and Peter McCambridge from the original French, Ce qu’on respire sur Tatouine.

To whet your appetite, here’s a review of Tatouine:

“Réhel gives the reader a front-row seat to a baroque and often hilarious interiority – one that highlights the complexity and tragedy of the human condition, while playfully revealing the capacity of the human mind for turning the struggles of existence, large and small, into a source of amusement. […] In addition to the often-dark humour, Réhel has a poet’s eye for rhythm, repetition, and stark imagery that thankfully isn’t lost in the exceptional translation by Katherine Hastings and Peter McCambridge.”

The One eRead/Un Livrel Canada is a digital, bilingual, cross-Canada book club  connecting readers to one another and to their libraries.

The Initiative

The Canadian Urban Libraries Council / Conseil des Bibliothèques Urbaines du Canada (CULC/CBUC) has created an opportunity for all public libraries to participate in a Canada-wide digital reading program. The initiative is similar to a “one book, one city” initiative, but on a national scale and in digital format.

Les petites presses canadiennes fournissent du contenu électronique aux bibliothèques à une fraction du coût des grandes maisons d'édition. Consultez leurs catalogues de titres, vous vous verrez, vous, vos voisins et les personnes que vous devez rencontrer dans leurs histoires.
