Lyse Champagne's short story collection, The Light That Remains, was shortlisted for the 2017 Danuta Gleed LIterary Award for best first short story collection. The stories are set in Turkey, Ukraine, China, France, Cambodia and Rwanda and chronicle the lives of six families before History overtakes them, snaps a picture before the film runs out. Lyse writes in English and in French. Her stories have appeared in Antigonish Review, Descant, The New Quarterly, Room of One's Own, Wascana Review, and Windsor Review. Her memoir of growing up French in Ontario, Double Vision: Reflections of a Bicultural Canadian was published by Key Porter Books and her play Chicane de Famille won the David Smith Playwriting Prize. She lives in Ottawa with her family.
