Nos héroïnes
Click here to reserve

Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette invites young people to discover the portraits of 40 little-known Quebec women, whether they were sportswomen, nuns, scientists or artists, who fought, each in their own way, against the stagnation of their time. Elsie Reford, whose 150th birthday will be celebrated in 2022, is one of these women. The opportunity was too good not to invite Anaïs to the Reford Gardens.

This book takes us through history from the point of view of girls, women, mothers, rebels and activists. Their names and faces will remain in your memory. They are pioneers, they are models. Anaïs conveys their humanity and strength of character through everyday anecdotes and honors them with tenderness.

Published by Marchand de feuilles and beautifully illustrated by Mathilde Cinq-Mars, Nos héroïnes is an essential album for all little girls, all little boys and... all grown-ups.
