Poet, playwright, and librarian, Éva Circé-Côté was a prolific journalist writing for progressive newspapers under a number of pseudonyms. As a feminist and a freethinker who fought for equality and secularism, she offers a non-conformist perspective on Quebec society and politics in the first four decades of the twentieth century.

Freethinker is translated from the 2011 Clio prize winner, Éva Circé-Côté, libre penseuse, 1871–1949.
