Deni Y. Béchard launches French translation of "Cures for Hunger"

DeniBechard.jpgDeni Y. Béchard's memoir 'Cures for Hunger' has met great acclaim. It tells his own story, of being a young boy, asked to draw his family tree as a class project, and faced with the reality that he knew nothing about his father. The book tells the tale of that relationship, as the son slowly unravels the mystery of André Béchard, who was born in Gaspé, but whose life takes a treacherous path across a continent and back. He's in Quebec City to launch the French translation as part of the ImagiNation Writer's Festival.
