THE FLORENCE GOULD LECTURES
From 2007 to spring 2018, six times each year the French Literature in the Making series welcomed a new French writer to speak about his or her work with Olivier Barrot; journalist, author, and television personality who plays a prominent role in French cultural life. He hosts the daily literary program « Un livre un jour » on France 3 and TV5 television and directs a series of public discussions with actors of the Comédie Française on the art of their profession. His most recent books are Mitteleuropa (2015), Un livre un jour, un livre toujours (2014), La Revue blanche (2012), Le Fils perdu (2012), Ciné Club (2010), and L'Ami posthume (2008).
Events made possible through the generous support of the Florence Gould Foundation with additional support from Sofitel and Air France.
Starting fall 2019, Machines à écrire, a new series on contemporary literature in French, will take place at La Maison Française.
