For the next three days, NYU will host seven conversations between French and American authors. American greats like Rick Moody and Russell Banks will pair off with a diverse selection of France's best wordsmiths. The dialogue aims to generate more American interest in French literature, as well as illuminate the conditions of the written word in the respective countries. The first dialogue, between Geneviève Brisac and Rick Moody begins tonight at 7:00. All events will be held in Hemmerdinger Hall. Click the link below for the full schedule.
