The famous French writer Pascal Bruckner was invited by our Alliance to give a talk in North Carolina. Philosopher, essayist and novelist, Pascal Bruckner has published around thirty paper, most of them reviewing the French society and culture.
The 2nd of May at 7pm, we welcomed him in downtown Raleigh. His talk was on the topic developed in his penultimate book, “La Sagesse de l’argent” (2016) – “The wisdom of money”. Bruckner talked for a long time about the relationship French and American citizen have with money. The discussions that followed with the audience were animated and very enlightening.
Our partner, the library Des livres & Délices offered a wide range of the authors books to buy after the talk, a few of them were translated in English. The author signed them in the welcoming atmosphere of the drinks offered by the alliance.
