French Literature in the Making



Six times each year, the French Literature in the Making series welcomes 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). He has been hosting French Literature in the Making at New York University since 2007.

Lectures begin at 7:00 p.m. unless indicated otherwise. All events are in French.

These events are made possible through the generous support of the Florence Gould Foundation with additional support from Sofitel and La Compagnie.
