French Bookstores in Alberta





Arts are the expression of a culture’s values. Franco-Albertans combine a rich European heritage, complete with religious festivals of renewal and celebration, with traditional dance, theatre, music, and literature. A hard and sometimes bitter battle was fought to preserve French culture and identity when it was in decline in the late 19th century through to the mid and late 1900s, and this section explores some of the traditions, people, and organizations that supported French arts and culture to keep them vibrant in today’s Alberta.
