Deni Béchard et le 1960 Galaxie convertible.

I'm in Moncton, New Brunswick, heart of the Acadian country (these are the people who became "Cajuns" in Louisiana) for the Frye Festival.  Last night I read from my novel The O'Briens at the Capitol Theatre, an old vaudeville house downtown. Also on stage were four other writers, English & French, and two sets of musicians : Les Hay Babies, an indie folk organic trio of extremely lively young women who sang in French; and a three-guy indie-folk-organic string band, Olympic Symphonium.
              One of the authors appearing at the festival is Deni Béchard, whose novel Rèmedes pour le Faim caught my eye, for obvious reasons.
