Look at this article

The book, hi Hi ! Jean Lapierre, a man of the people, written by the journalist Marianne White and published by Editions of the Journal, requires a reprint because of its success.

After a successful launch in the company of a few politicians last week in Montreal, the author was proud to present his work in front of colleagues and friends who gathered Tuesday in Quebec city.

The liberal mna for Jean-Talon, Sébastien Proulx, the author Marianne White, the mayor of Quebec city Régis Labeaume, and the publisher and editor-in-chief of the Journal de Québec Sébastien Ménard were present at the launch on Tuesday.

“I am very happy to see so many people, and also of the success of the book, especially to see that they are going to reprint. It really touches me,” said Marianne White, who remained very discreet during her work of 18 months. “It was intentional to keep the secret,” she says.


Three years after the tragic death of Mr. Lapierre in a plane crash in the Îles-de-la-Madeleine, the author has collected testimonies, including those of Pierre Bruneau and former premiers Lucien Bouchard and Paul Martin.

The family and friends of Jean Lapierre have enjoyed reading the book. “Everyone was very happy. I’ve only had positive feedback up to now.”

The author will participate in the 41st edition of the Salon du livre de Montréal, from 14 to 19 November 2018, at Place Bonaventure.
