The Seychelles recently presented two significant literary works, “Alain & Ginette St. Ange, Family Ties” and “Alain St. Ange, A Life in Tourism,” to the Reunion Island’s Departmental Council. These insightful books, authored by Alain St. Ange, have now found a home in the research section of the Departmental Archives.
This gesture marks a valuable addition to the archives, offering a comprehensive exploration of Alain St. Ange’s life and his contributions to the field of tourism, providing an enriching resource for those seeking to delve into the history and legacy of the Seychellois figure.
The presentation of the two books was make by Alain St. Ange to Ismael Locate, the Deputy Director of the Departmental Archives at Hotel du Department in Saint Denis in Reunion Island on the 23rd of January 2024. Following discussions on the books and the Seychellois Families with direct links to Reunion, Alain St. Ange was received by Teddy Sovet, the Director of the President’s Office to again discuss publications and historical ties between the two Indian Ocean Islands.
Reunion Island Officials have encouraged Mr St. Ange to work to try to get the book that retraces so many Seychellois Families into French and in so doing open its potential to the many Reunionais using the research documents at the Departmental Archives.
Alain St. Ange thanked Reunion and its Department Archives for placing the two Seychelles Books into their research department.
