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.
