Laura Bourbeau

Laura Bourbeau, Speaker at C2 Montréal 2019

The comic book took her a year to create. She originally drew it for fun in her spare time, only deciding to explore publishing options after it was finished.

The anti-bullying author

Laura Bourbeau is a 14-year-old Quebec author and recent Mammouth Gala prize winner who recently published her anti-bullying comic book “Millie.” Laura was inspired by Fanny Britt’s comic strip Jane, the Fox and Me, and spent much of last summer alongside a graphic designer reworking the 245 illustrations in her book. Millie, which tells the story of a sixth-grader who overcomes bullying by a classmate, is meant for students aged 8-13, and Laura hopes that it can make a difference in the lives of her readers.
