Frédéric Ciriez, Nico Helminger, Lambert Schlechter, moderated by Julien Girault

Three prominent authors talk about the trends and developments in French-language literature, including how it addresses – or doesn’t – the contemporary issues confronting the modern world. Frédéric Ciriez is a French novelist, essayist, and advocate of the Sape movement, which was born in the war-torn streets of Brazzaville and Kinshasa and emphasizes fashion, elegance, and the values of peace and nonviolence; Nico Helminger is a Luxembourgian novelist, playwright, and poet who has won the country’s most important culture award, the Prix Batty Weber; and Lambert Schlechter is the author of 25-some books, who studied philosophy and literature in Paris and Nancy before teaching philosophy, French language, and literature at the Lycée Classique in Echternach.

This event will be in French with English interpretation.

Trois auteurs éminents parlent des tendances et du développement de la littérature francophone. Ils montrent notamment dans quelle mesure et de quelle façon cette littérature traite ou non des problèmes de la société actuelle. Frédéric Ciriez est romancier, essayiste et membre actif du mouvement SAPE. Mouvement, qui né dans les ruelles violentes de Brazzaville et de Kinshasa, met en relation la mode et l’élégance avec les valeurs de paix et de pacifisme; Nico Helminger, romancier, dramaturge et poète luxembourgeois, est lauréat du prix culturel le plus important de son pays: Le Prix Batty Weber; et Lambert Schlechter, auteur d’une vingtaine de livres, après des études de littérature et de philosophie à Paris et à Nice, enseigne aujourd’hui la langue la littérature française au Lycée Classique d’Echternach au Luxembourg.
