The World Is Moving: A Celebration of French Caribbean Culture

  • Institut Francais Du Royaume Uni 17 Queensbery Pl London, SW7 2DT United Kingdom (map)

Elected to the Académie Française in 2015, Montreal-based Haitian writer Dany Laferrière is coming to the UK for the Festival America in London. In partnership with Festival America, the British Library, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Québec Government Office in London, this French Caribbean evening will be an exceptional opportunity to hear Dany Laferrière talk about his writing and in particular The Enigma of the Return. The talk will be followed by a book signing and a music session. Guadeloupian drummer and composer Arnaud Dolmen will perform with pianist Leonardo Montana, after an introduction to ‘jazz creole’ from journalist Kevin Legendre.
