Literary tea of Rodney St-Éloi and Yara El-Ghadban

Literary performance Les racistes n’ont jamais vu la mer

A collaboration with the Salon du livre de Rimouski

Host: Élise Argouarc'h

Rodney Saint-Éloi and Yara El-Ghadban are co-authors of the essay Les racistes n’ont jamais vu la mer, published by Mémoire d’encrier in 2021 and finalist at the Prix des libraires du Québec in 2022. Let's talk about racism because racism concerns everyone. Writers Rodney Saint-Éloi and Yara El-Ghadban invite readers to take part in this delicate but necessary conversation. Neither a manifesto, nor a textbook, nor an indictment, Les racistes n’ont jamais vu la mer engages us in a dialogue about ourselves and others. All is freely expressed, confronted and answered. Words. Experiences. Ideas. Emotions. Let’s talk about racism because withdrawal into oneself must be overcome. To live together, differently. The authors invite the public to a reading of some excerpts from the book, accompanied by a musical atmosphere, and followed by a discussion moderated by Élise Argouarc’h.

Poet, writer, essayist, Rodney Saint-Éloi has authored some twenty books, including Nous ne trahirons pas le poème et autres recueils, a poetry anthology published by Points (2021). He runs the publishing house Mémoire d’encrier.

Novelist and anthropologist, Yara El-Ghadban is the author of three novels, including Je suis Ariel Sharon (2018). She is at the head of l’Espace de la diversité, an organization fighting against racism and exclusion.
