Three prominent authors talk about the trends and developments in French-language literature, including how it addresses – or doesn’t – the contemporary issues confronting the modern world. Frédéric Ciriez is a French novelist, essayist, and advocate of the Sape movement, which was born in the war-torn streets of Brazzaville and Kinshasa and emphasizes fashion, elegance, and the values of peace and nonviolence; Nico Helminger is a Luxembourgian novelist, playwright, and poet who has won the country’s most important culture award, the Prix Batty Weber; and Lambert Schlechter is the author of 25-some books, who studied philosophy and literature in Paris and Nancy before teaching philosophy, French language, and literature at the Lycée Classique in Echternach.
This event will be in French with English interpretation.
