The Knowlton Literary Festival is going from strength to strength, drawing literary luminaries from Québec, from Canada, from around the world to this beautiful village. It's absolutely thrilling to be a part of this extraordinary festival, whether it's as a volunteer, a participant or eager member of the audience. I want to welcome the writers to Knowlton and say how very pleased we are that you're here. And I also want to welcome the readers, who have come from all over to hear favourite authors and be introduced to new ones. And to bask in this perfect marriage of place and prose and poetry. Bienvenue à Knowlton, mes amis.
