Novelist Kevin Lambert seeks to understand his northern Quebec roots

Kevin Lambert is hoping to uncover the narrative of his northern Quebec heritage that dates back to the early days of colonialism.  

Originally from the Chicoutimi borough of Saguenay, Que., Lambert is an award-winning novelist who turned to books growing up as a way to escape his feelings of isolation in an insular community.

“Everything that was different from the norm was bad,” says Lambert, who joined the University of Toronto’s department of French, in the Faculty of Arts & Science, earlier this year as a postdoctoral researcher.
