The French cultural services along with the Department of French and Francophone Studies at UCLA, the UCLA Center for the Study of Global France and CulturesFrance are launching a Franco-American literary festival next May in Venice. France’s famous literary critic Olivier Barrot has been a major contributor in bringing this project together. The festival is designed for the American public eager to discover French contemporary literature and for the French community providing them with an occasion to gather around books.
The driving force behind this project is the idea of dialogue, whether between France and America, or between the written and spoken words, for the American public and the French community.
The festival features readings in both French and English of contemporary fiction writers performed by authors, actors and actresses of both nationalities.
