Thursday, August 15, the Morrin Centre hosted a special off-festival event with author Kathleen Saint-Onge. Originally from Quebec City, the author grew up in a French-speaking home and attended English schools. In her presentation during the Quebec launch of Bilingual Being: My life as a hyphen, she explained how this duality played an important part in her story.
