The 2nd Edition of the FESTIVAL VOIX D’AMÉRIQUES kicks off on Thursday, in the company of Patrice DESBIENS, guest of honour of this 2nd Edition. With his inimitable personality — he is at once unflinching, humble, and moving — Patrice DESBIENS has gained a reputation for his impertinence, humour, and implacable lucidity. His poetry is rooted in reality; his razor-sharp writing, powerful sense of imagery, and tortured yet compassionate texts have seduced audiences and inspired other artists — including Richard Desjardins, René Lussier and Chloé Ste-Marie — to work with him. During the entire festival, the public will have opportunities to meet this leading French-Canadian poet.
