Le Salon du Livre du Grand Sudbury, which takes place at the Radisson Hotel May 8-11, may be a francophone book fair, but that doesn't mean it's not anglophone-friendly.

The organizers encourage people to check out the 32-page festival program, which tags various events with the “French Kiss recommends” banner, along with an English explanation.

These are activities that can be enjoyed with a minimal knowledge of French. The same information is available on the festival's website, lesalondulivre.ca.

Among these “French Kiss” Le Salon du Livre du Grand Sudbury recommendations for anglophones are a folk-blues performance by Thomas Hellman at the Moose Hall May 9 at 8 p.m.

Another event in this vein is the poetry meets heavy metal at “La Nuit de la poésie de Sudbury” presented by Rhizome with the band Anonymus from Québec, which takes place at Little Montreal on Elgin Street May 8 at 8 p.m.

On May 10 at 10:30 a.m., Pandora Topp presents a lively reading of local author Danielle Daniel’s book inspired by totemic animals published in two versions, French and English, Parfois je suis un renard/Sometimes I Feel Like a Fox.

Tickets to the event cost $5 for a day pass $15 for four-day pass or $25 for a family four-day pass. Children under 12 get in for free.
