Maison de la littérature is housed in the former Wesley Temple, in the heart of Old Québec. The building underwent a stunning interior transformation and a modern, luminous extension was added, all courtesy of architectural firm Chevalier Morales Architectes. A core component of Bibliothèque de Québec, Maison de la littérature houses a public library and a permanent exhibition on Québec literature, writing carrels, a comic book workshop, a creation studio, a writer’s residence, a quiet lounge and a variety of events presented on its stage throughout the year. Open to all, Maison de la littérature is a place for writing, creating, meeting, and participating—bringing literature to life in a lively, warm, and inviting setting. It is a space for the spoken and written word and for the creation and dissemination of the literary arts.

SLIDE THROUGH HISTORY

More than a century-old slide, a unique attraction in Quebec City. This impressive structure, which has become familiar to residents of Quebec, appeared on the Dufferin Terrace in 1884. A few years later, the iconic Château Frontenac, most photographed hotelin the world, was erected next to the slide, projecting shade on what we believe is the oldest attraction in town. It was then closed in 1981, but then again regained its appeal in December 1992 and has been operated since then.
