The Decision to Publish in French, Part I, by Linda Leith


Abou Farman's Clerks of the Passage is one of seven books LLP published in its launch year, 2012.

In September 2014, LLP embarked on a process that has led, one year later, to the decision to publish books in French as well as English.

The first step was a grant application to the Canada Council, in which we made a committment to disseminate the results of the process. This three-part article was submitted in slightly different form to the agency in September 2015 as part of our final report to the Leadership for Change program. 

This is Part I of a three-part text. Part II is here.

Not to mention the books that will follow in the new year.
