Café Littéraire: Adrien Bosc

Saturday 13 August 2016 12:00-13:00

In partnership with the Book Department of the Institut français du Royaume-Uni, we are delighted to welcome Adrien Bosc, guest of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, for a ’café littéraire’ at the Institut.

Adrien Bosc was born in Avignon in 1986. He is the founder of Éditions du Sous-Sol and the magazines Desports and Feuilleton. Last January, he was appointed deputy director of the Editions du Seuil - a major French publishing house. His success as a publisher echoes his success as a writer: Constellation, his first novel, was a literary sensation in France. The book is now available in the United Kingdom thanks to translator Willard Wood and publisher Serpent’s Tail.

Originally published by Stock in France in 2014, it was awarded the Grand prix du roman de l’Académie française 2014, the Prix littéraire de la Vocation 2014, the Prix Gironde Nouvelles Écritures 2014, and the Prix Paris Diderot-Esprits libres 2015... And it received an English Pen Award here in the UK.

Sat 13 Aug 12:00pm - 13:00pm he will be at the Institut francais for a free and informal discussion about narrative non-fiction before heading to the Edinburgh International Book Festival, in discussion with Miriam Moss
