French & American Authors in Conversation

February 24 - 26, 2011

Hemmerdinger Hall
NYU Silver Center, 1st floor
100 Washington Square East

Curated by Olivier Barrot & Tom Bishop

In French and English. Simultaneous translation available for this event.

The conversations between French and American authors that constitute the seven one-hour sessions of the Festival of New French Writing will each pair one French and one American writer, confronting their respective experiences and ambitions with respect to literary creation. Each animated by an American cultural critic familiar with the literatures of the two countries, the dialogues will explore the singular qualities of each author, national similarities and differences, as well as the future of literature.
