Charles-Étienne Ferland will present his science fiction novel Dévorés. Ferland deploys his background in environmental science and insect ecology in his novel, which  brings readers into a dystopian world where food reserves and agricultural crops are ravaged by a new wasp-like insect species that operates until there is almost nothing left to eat but the last prey...human beings. Anyone who ventures outside during the day is doomed to a deadly destiny, and soon people compete against one another for the remaining commodities. Ferland will be interviewed by French Cultural Center librarian Ingrid Marquardt, and there will be an opportunity for audience Q&A.
