Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.
Frederic Raphael

Michael Edwards: Paris reading


Thursday 23 May 2019, 19:00 to 21:00
Location:

British Council
9 rue de Constantine
Paris

Description:

Michael Edwards OBE was the first Briton admitted to the Académie française. This evening's talk will focus on his new book of poetry:  At the Brasserie Lipp which is a return to the English language, after having written for many years only in French, and the strangeness of this return. This event is free - register here.

There will be readings from the new collection followed by a question and answer session with  Marc Porée a Professor of English Literature at Ecole Normale Supériore. 
This talk will be suitable for relatively high-level English speakers.  

This programme of talks is part of our offer for adult students, it is open and free for all students, but it is also open and free for members of the public ( subject to seat availability). It is a series of monthly talks in English on different themes, delivered by our teachers and also external speakers. Information on upcoming sessions is available on our website and our social networks.

We offer refreshments at the end of the talks to encourage attendees to practise their English.
