Festival of New French Writing: French and American Authors in Conversation
Seven major French writers, all translated into English, exemplifying the wide variety of styles and forms of contemporary French literary production, will come to New York from February 24 to 26 for two and a half days of one-on-one encounters with leading American writers, in dialogues hosted by well known American cultural critics.
These discussions will shed light on the concerns and accomplishments of writers in France today as well as on the similarities and differences that the commitment to writing implies in France and in the U.S. The Festival of New French Writing hopes to attract new American readers to modern French and Francophone fiction and non-fiction.
