Are you a fan of French Literature? If so, be sure to check out the Festival of French Writing sponsored in part by The Center for French Civilization & Culture at NYU and curated by Olivier Barrot and NYU's own Tom Bishop.

Here's a brief description from the Festival website:

Eleven major French writers, all translated into English, exemplifying the wide variety of styles and forms of contemporary French literary production, will come to New York from February 26 to 28 for two and a half days of one-on-one encounters with leading American writers, in dialogues hosted by well known American cultural critics.

These discussions will shed light on the concerns and accomplishments of writers in France today as well as on the similarities and differences that the commitment to writing implies in France and in the U.S.
