Two pieces of information concerning Fanny Britt and Isabelle Arsenault's book Jane, le Renard et Moi. The writer Fanny Britt will present her comic book today, April 23, in Montréal:
Du côté de la bibliothèque de l’Île-Bizard, le 23 avril, à 13h, l’auteure et dramaturge Fanny Britt présentera aux enfants de 11-12 ans, Jane, le renard et moi, une histoire que lui a inspiré Jane Eyre, le chef-d’œuvre de Charlotte Brontë, un album merveilleusement illustré par Isabelle Arsenault. Informations: 514-620-6257. (Cités Nouvelles)
The comic book will be translated into English and published this fall:
[Sheila] Barry said that Jane, the Fox and Me, written by Fanny Britt and illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault, got a favorable reception as well. The graphic novel tells the tale of a girl who is being ostracized by her classmates and who finds consolation by reading Jane Eyre. The book was originally published in French by Quebec publisher La Pastèque, but Groundwood, which will be publishing it in North America this fall, has world English rights and strong interest from both the U.K. and Australia.
