Part 2 of French Passions will be launched on September with Geoff Dyer on Camus

La deuxième saison de French Passions à l'Institut Français

From 22/09/2011 to 15/12/2011

Because reading may be the most frivolous and crucial thing ever…
Because discovering a writer is a love story like no other...
Because today’s artists are born of yesterday’s authors...
Because French classics belong to everyone...

Every month, between January and December 2011, a British personality will come and talk about his favourite French artist at the Institut français. Don’t expect any lecture here; or any display of scholarship; but be ready to find out about a very special intimacy: ‘Parce que c’était lui, parce que c’était moi.’

The first season of the French Passions series featured Will Self on Montaigne, Alain de Botton on Stendhal, Posy Simmonds on Flaubert, Edmund de Waal on Proust, Tom McCarthy on Robbe-Grillet and Kate Mosse on Maupassant…

Part 2 will be launched on 15 September with Geoff Dyer on Camus: the amazing author of Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi will talk about a love story which lead him to Algeria, in search for traces of Camus…

Other dates in the series include:

22 September, with David Nicholls on Truffaut
From Les Quatre Cents Coups to L’Amour en fuite… this is all about passion!

13 October, with Simon McBurney on Rabelais
France’s Shakespeare? Rabelais, no doubt!

10 November, with Michael Morpurgo on Giono
Is there a more beautiful title than “The Man Who Planted Trees”?

17 November, with Dame Felicity Lott on Hugo
Not only does Felicity Lott read Hugo... she also sings his poems!

15 December, with Simon Schama on Colette
Because all your senses are addressed, reading Colette is like having a feast…
