Heidelberger Literaturtage present Eric Plamondon: “Taqawan”, a reading and a conversation in French and German. 

Taqawan is what the Mi’gmaq call the salmon that returns to the river where it was born. Éric Plamondon also goes back to the origins: He interweaves the history of the colonization of Eastern Canada with the legends of the Mi’gmaq and their struggle for independence. A gripping novel noir and a fascinating insight into the world of this First Nation.

“Taqawan”, translated into German by Anne Thomas, published by Lenos Verlag. 

Moderation: Dr. Erika Mursa, Chairwoman of the German-French Cultural Circle (dfk)

German reading: Klaus Knobloch


The project is part of Canada’s literary programme related to Canada`s Guest of Honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2021 and is supported by the Government of Canada (Embassy of Canada to Germany).
