The Lucky Seven Interview, with Ben Lefebvre

Contrary to popular belief, Canadian Literature was already a robust discipline before the great voices of the sixties came to define our national literature.

No one knows that better than Ben Lefebvre, the editor of the Early Canadian Literature Series published by Wilfrid Laurier University Press. The series returns to print rare texts from the early canon of Canadian English literature. With novels, memoirs and creative non-fiction, the series showcases texts by Indigenous peoples and immigrants from a range of ancestral, language and religious origins. Each book features an afterword offering a new interpretation in a contemporary context. Five titles are already available with a sixth forthcoming.
