Rencontre littéraire with Pierre Ducrozet ( /!\ Change of time) - Institut Français d'Ecosse - Edinburgh

As part of the Beyond Words Festival, the Institut français d’Ecosse is proud to organise a Rencontre littéraire with Pierre Ducrozet, dedicated to the relationship between poetry and ecology, his works, and the art of translation.Pierre Ducrozet (b. 1982) is a renowned writer and translator, especially of poetry. His last book, entitled 'L’Invention des corps', was rewarded with the Prix de Flore 2017. Its ambitious exploration of the multiple ways bodies are redefined in the modern era is seminal to the reflection he will develop at the Institut français d’Ecosse.Rencontre littéraire with Pierre DucrozetThursday, 16 May 2019 | 6.45 - 8.00 pmTalk in French, followed by Q&A in English & FrenchFREE & Open to allInstitut français d’EcosseMédiathèque Sir Patrick Geddes (first floor)West Parliament SquareEdinburgh EH1 1RFAccess DetailsThe Institut français d’Ecosse and the Médiathèque Sir Patrick Geddes are fully accessible with step-free access available at West Parliament Square and George IV Bridge.BookingsBook directly online or contact us at 0131 285 6030 or info@ifecosse.org.ukAbout the Beyond Words FestivalFrom 15 to 20 May 2019, the Institut français goes Beyond Words with a festival, bursting with bilingual live literature events, writers’ talks, musical performances, shared reading experiences, book launches, screenings of recent literary adaptations, staged readings, translators’ pitches… and plenty of books to read and discover.This third edition of a festival proudly hosts French-language writers recently translated into English, English-language writers who have a special connection with France, European writers appearing in translation, as well as translators, journalists, musicians, academics, graphic novelists and all who are interested in bringing literature to life in other words.IFE Membership and Discount RatesWhile this event is free and open to all, the Institut programmes many members only events and offers discounted member rates at other events.
