Several TBR Books authors attended the American Association of Teachers of French’s annual convention at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans on July 11-14, 2022. The convention’s theme was: “Laissez les bons temps rouler: Explorer la diversité du monde francophone.”
New Orleans-based Rhonda Broussard signed copies of her new book, One Good Question, at the CALEC booth. Joseph Dunn, Scott Tilton, Emmanuel Kayembe, and Kathleen Stein-Smith, who contributed to the recently-released French All Around Us, gave a talk on language advocacy. The book made the headlines of Frenchly and French Morning last month with the following title: “French All Around Us: The Evolving French Language in the United States.”
CALEC’s booth featured many of our books, including The Heart of an Artichoke, by Linda Ashour and Claire Lerognon, which was recently featured by the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie; Rose Alone by Sheila Decosse, recently discussed in the East Hampton Star; Can We Agree to Disagree by Agathe Laurent and Sabine Landolt who were recently interviewed by France-Amérique for the edition of their August magazine; Deana Sobel Lederman’s Rainbow, Masks, and Ice Cream trilogy, now available in 14 languages; Le projet Colibri by Vickie Frémont; Fabrice Jaumont’s Conversations on Bilingualism; Valerie Sun’s Navigating Dual Immersion, and many more.
