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.
