The Literary Breakfasts series is a unique opportunity to share a privileged moment with an author. In the comfy atmosphere of the Bistrot de l’Institut français discuss over a breakfast the author’s latest book, his or her inspirations, background, favorite books, writing process … Being a fan is not compulsory but it might help! The attendance is limited to 8 people – ‘privileged’ we said.
About Laurent Binet
Laurent Binet is the latest intellectual maverick to win the 2010 Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman. His masterpiece ’HHhH’ traces the events and persons involved in Operation Anthropoid, the plot to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich, a Nazi henchman who earned a plethora of nicknames from ‘the Butcher of Prague’ and ‘the man with the iron heart’ to ‘HHhH’, a quip he supposedly circulated around Germany himself, an acronym for Himmlers Hirn heisst Heydrich (Himmler’s brain is named Heydrich).
