11am reading Claude Lalumiere and Alexandra Renwick
130pm A panel on language usage (past and/or present).
230 a panel on the cultural differences between English and French speculative fiction Alain Ducharme (A), Marie Bilodeau, Derek Künsken, Sylvain Neuvel, Olivier Paquet & Patrick Senécal.
330pm Representation and Inclusivity: The Dagenais Test a panel with Geneviève Blouin (A), Luc Dagenais (A), Marie Bilodeau, Talhi Briones & Yves Meynard.
11am Ursula Leguin’s legacy with Josée Lepire (A), Caroline-Isabelle Caron, Élisabeth
Vonarburg & Jo Walton
130pm A panel with Yves Meynard (A), Dave Côté, Alain Ducharme, Éric Gauthier &
Isabelle Lauzon that I have to leave early to catch my flight.
