Join us for a reading of The Eleventh Hour, a touching new picture book by award-winning author and illustrator, Jacques Goldstyn. (6:45 p.m. in English, 6 p.m. in French).

Featuring two best friends, Jules and Jim, it tells of their experiences of hardship and loss during the First World War, right up to its end. Mr. Goldstyn will also share how he draws and creates his characters. The Eleventh Hour is inspired in part by objects and stories presented in the Museum.

Jacques Goldstyn is an illustrator, writer and political cartoonist. He created the iconic characters in the children’s magazines and books Les Débrouillards. His books include Letters to a Prisoner and Bertolt, both of which were chosen as Kirkus Reviews Best Picture Books of 2017. He won the Governor General’s Literary Award in 2017 for his book Azadah. He creates drawings every day. The Eleventh Hour is dedicated to his grandfather, who served with the French army during the entire First World War.
