“Un récit captivant et déchirant du parcours d’une vie entière; une histoire qui inspire. Avec l’histoire du Dr Amporn, il ne s’agit pas de survie ni de guerre, mais du combat de toute une vie pour se défaire de ses démons et transformer son destin.” NELSON RAND, auteur et journaliste.

Please join us as Ottawa native and author Chantal Jauvin presents her book “The Boy with a Bamboo Heart” published by Maverick House. The book was named Book of the Lunar Year 2016 and placed as finalist for the Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

This bilingual event is open to the public, so please bring a friend. No tickets are required.

Copies of the book, both the original English edition and the newly translated French edition will be available for sale. All author proceeds are being donated to the FORDEC charity.

À propos de Dr. Amporn Wathanavongs: He is the current CEO and founder of FORDEC (Foundation for the Rehabilitation and Development of Children and Family). He is also the former National Director of the Christian Children’s Fund. Dr. Amporn works relentlessly to educate Thai children and help their families. He received the Order of the Crown of Thailand in 1996 in recognition of his work.

À propos de Chantal Jauvin : Chantal est une avocate internationale. L’Enfant au Cœur de Bambou est son premier livre ; elle l’a écrit en anglais et traduit en français avec des collaboratrices. Elle a énormément voyagé tout au long de sa vie avec pour objectif de poursuivre une carrière internationale. Elle a habité au Japon, au Cambodge, en Russie, aux Etats-Unis et en Autriche, et a également accompli des missions plus courtes au Vietnam, tout en continuant son MBA au Royaume-Uni. Elle a négocié à Paris, à Buenos Aires et à Sao Paulo, assez souvent pour se sentir chez elle dans toutes ces villes. Elle a traité avec les Banques Centrales d’Espagne et d’Afrique du Sud, a travaillé avec des sociétés du Ghana à l’Ouzbékistan, et a coaché des avocats de Dubaï à Bombay. Chantal et son époux, William Thomas, habite à Philadelphie, Pennsylvanie (E-U).
