livre et savoirs / Livre & Savoirs / VANCOUVER - French authors @ Writers Fest

The Writers Fest Vancouver brings annually together writers from around the world for a week of readings, lectures, writing workshops and other performances.

From October 16 to 22, 2017, many fiction writers from Canada, New Zealand, the United States, Scotland, France and more are invited, including French authors Camille Bordas and Sylvain Prudhomme.

Camille Bordas grew up in Paris and Mexico City and now lives in Chicago. Her transitory life is reflected in her sensitive and thoughtful writing. Her previous novels Les treize desserts and Partie commune were published in French. Her fiction has also appeared in The New Yorker. Bordas’ first English novel, How to Behave in a Crowd, has been described by George Saunders as “an utterly charming book.” It is an immersive coming of age story that brilliantly captures the difficulties of being a teenager and the realization that adulthood is just as confusing.

 

Sylvain Prudhomme spent his childhood in Cameroon, Burundi, Niger and Mauritius. He moved to study literature in Paris, but left to become a full-time writer. He has written several novels, and is one of the founders of the Geste magazine, which publishes interviews with contemporary writers and artists. He was also one of the founders of Le Tigre magazine. His French novel, Les Grands (The Greats), has been translated by Jessica Moore to be released this year. It tells the story of a country that falls under a dictatorship that challenges their ideals and hope.


To listen Camille Bordas and Sylvain PrudHomme come on Friday October 20 @ Performance Works, starting from 8:00 pm.

Camille Bordas will also be with Mr. Bill Richardson on Saturday October 21 at Waterfront Theatre, starting at 10:30 am.

Sylvain PrudHomme will be at the Studio 1398 on Saturday October 21 at 2:00 pm.
