Congratulations to 2017 Foundation scholar Benjamin Gagnon Chainey, who won the 2017 Mœbius Public’s Prize for “Full Moon”  (French only). Benjamin was first announced as one of the five finalists in January 2018. As the Mœbius team declared, “Full Moon” is a "bold and demanding" text, a "mysterious, offbeat, theatrical" fiction that charmed readers from all walks of life. Thank you to the Foundation community members who voted for Benjamin!

Benjamin Gagnon Chainey is a 2017 Foundation scholar and a doctoral candidate in French-language literature at Université de Montréal and Université Paris 7. Read Moebius’s announcement here (French only) and read “Full Moon” here
