This Monday, May 20, 2024, the Quebec literary community lost a great writer and a person of heart…

The entire Espace de la diversité team is saddened and extends its deepest sympathies to Caroline Dawson’s family and friends.

EDLD had the honor of welcoming her virtually during one of our midis littéraires (literary noon sessions) in collaboration with the Festival international de la littérature (FIL). Her work will continue to inspire generations of writers and readers.

In accordance with Caroline’s wishes, her family invites all those who have admired her, from near or far, to make a donation to the Fondation du Cégep Édouard-Montpetit, for the creation of a bursary that will provide financial assistance to young first-generation migrant women.
