Véronique Grenier tells two tales of childhood: childhood as a concept, with all its kitschiness; and childhood as a “thing,” often rough and dirty.

You can follow Véronique’s tumblr, Les P'tits pis moé and read her columns on Urbania’s blog

About the speaker

Véronique Grenier likes everything that’s kitch, famous quotes and the 80s. When she does not teach philosophy, she tries very hard to turn her offspring into something, a quest which, humbly, provides her with plenty of material to feed her Tumblr, « Les p’tits pis moé », in which she plays the oh-so-glamorous role of « moé » (me). She collaborates on a weekly basis to Urbania’s blog and to the morning show of ICI Radio-Canada Estrie. Her contributions are a mixture of current news and philosophy. She has always published several poems in Les Écrits, XYZ, La revue de la nouvelle, Jet d’encre and Exit. In short, she loves words, and ideas.
