On Feb 29th at 6 pm, Ottawa Francophone Poet Laureate Margaret Michèle Cook will participate in the event Livres comme l’air at the Salon du livre de l’Outaouais. Margaret Michèle has been matched with a writer in prison and has written a dedication of one of her books to the prisoner. She will read the dedication at that time, as will 4 other writers also paired with writers in prison.

This initiative aims to defend the right fundamental to freedom of expression and the release of more than a hundred imprisoned or threatened writers around the world.
