Over 500 people at the official launching of CD Saint-Exupéry in Toulouse
On November 14th 2015, I had the priviledge to do the official launching of my CD Saint-Exupéry: de cœur, de sable et d’étoiles at gala of the 6th Edition of the Festival des étoiles et des ailes which was held at the Cité de l’espace in Toulouse.
This short video shows an excerpt of the launching. Festival competition books and films Awards were presented at the gala. Over 500 people attended the gala.
The ceremony was held in the wake of the attacks in Paris. At the opening of the event, the audience took a minute of silence to pay their tribute to the victims. The city of Toulouse is particularly touched as they also have been in such a critical situation in March 2012. This was quite moving.
I wish 2016 will show solidarity between people as humanity needs it so much. As Saint-Exupéry wrote :
“Once men are caught up in an event, they cease to be afraid. Only the unknown frightens men.”
Louis Babin wishes to thank the following organisms : the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec for it financial support in order to get to Toulouse; the Festival des étoiles et des ailes for the presentation at the gala and the hospitality; the Foundation Antoine de Saint-Exupéry pour la jeunesse for it participation to the album project.
