MONTREAL /CNW Telbec/ – After producing its short film, La Valise, in 2012, for which the Hôtel was rewarded at the 2013 Worldwide Hospitality Awards in Paris, then inaugurating its permanent exhibition, Body and Soul, by Jean-Claude Poitras, in May of 2014, Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel Montréal has conceived of yet another innovative project. This time, the Hôtel has edited its own collection of short stories, entitled Suite Stories.
Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel Montréal has successfully embraced the challenge of assembling writers from various backgrounds around a single literary work. A total of 14 writers have collaborated on the project, including Chrystine Brouillet, Kim Thúy, Denis Vaugeois, Alain Mabanckou, Paul Colize, Steven Raichlen, CS Richardson, and Anthony De Sa, to name just a few… Each one of them has drawn inspiration from a stay at the Hôtel to write an original story, working with their choice of theme and style.
Detective story, poem, fiction, and romantic and historical short story are the styles that make for a rich and original collection, to be offered to hotel guests. Clients will also be able to obtain copies at the reception desk, with all proceeds being donated to the Literacy Foundation. Suite Stories will be published in November of 2014.
A library comprised of reading recommendations from each of the author-collaborators—in addition to their dedicated works—will also be installed in the Hôtel’s lobby. Visitors will have complimentary access to the library.
Indulge your imagination is the invitation that has been offered to Hôtel guests for the past 3 years, to immerse themselves in a fresh new type of stay characterized by unique and unprecedented cultural experiences.
