Eduard Louis and Geoffroy de Lagasnerie: New Engagements in French Literature and Politics
This is a University at the Festival Event which is part of the Chester Literature Festival organised by Storyhouse
Arranged by the Modern Languages Department, this is a unique chance to listen (in English!) to two of the most interesting figures of intellectual life in France. Edouard Louis‘ highly acclaimed novels En finir avec Eddy Bellegueule (Engl: The End of Eddy, 2017) and Histoire de la Violence have been translated into numerous languages while Geoffroy de Lagasnerie’s works are dedicated to sociological questions. In 2015, both authors signed a manifesto for the re-foundation of the French Left.
The event is free and can be booked here
