Join us for an evening of engaging conversation with author and sociologist Didier Eribon. Dinner will be served.
A professor of sociology at the Université de Picardie Jules Verne in Amiens, French journalist, novelist and public intellectual Didier Eribon’s popularity reaches far beyond academia. His autobiographical “nonfiction novel” Returning to Reims has become a bestseller since it first appeared in 2009. Returning to his hometown for his father’s funeral, Eribon describes his estrangement from the working-class world he had left behind thirty years earlier to study philosophy in Paris and to become a journalist writing for Libération (a newspaper founded by Jean Paul Sartre) and the weekly Le Nouvel Observateur about philosophy, literature and the history of gay life.

Join us for an evening of engaging conversation with Edouard Louis, author of "The End of Eddy" and "A History of Violence". This event is conjunction with the Montgomery Fellows Program.
Born in 1992 as Eddy Bellegueule in Hallencourt, a little village of 1400 souls in northern France, Édouard changed his surname to Louis when he left the violent working-class milieu of his parents and moved to Paris. He started studying sociology at the École normal superieur but quickly became the most celebrated French writer of his generation when he—just twenty-two years old—published his first novel En finir avec Eddy Belleueule (Éditions du Seuil) in 2014. A bestseller overnight and immediately translated into more than 20 languages, "The End of Eddy" tells the story of a gay boy, his agony, his sexual awakening, and his resistance against the homophobic, violent life in his hometown. In 2016, Louis published his second novel, "History of Violence", which recounts the story of his rape and attempted murder on Christmas Eve of 2012, the autobiographical novel centers around the cyclical and self-perpetuating nature of violence in society.
