On 8 March 2019, the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Alliance Française Franco-Irish Literary Festival.
For this special edition, organised on International Women’s Day, a roundtable discussion will take place between two well-known writers, Maggie O’Farrell and Noëlle Châtelet. Originally from Northern Ireland, Maggie O'Farrell was a literary critic and journalist until she devoted herself solely to her writing career. The French translation of her novel I am, I am, I am: Seventeen Brushes with Death will be launched by Belfond on 7 March.
Noëlle Châtelet is a novelist, essayist, academic and honorary president of French writers’ association Société des Gens de Lettres. Her books have been translated into several languages, and many of her texts have been adapted for theatre, television and film.
The discussion will be moderated by Jean-Philippe Imbert, Professor of Comparative Literature and Sexuality Studies at Dublin City University.
