Our library is part of Lit Crawl, the San Francisco literary festival going global!!

Lit Crawl comes once again to Angers!

In 2020, many of the Lit Crawls in our worldwide network were cancelled due to Covid-19, so it was decided to gather everyone for one big virtual literary hoedown. On October 24th from 10:30am-3pm (California time) we’ll hear from the global literati in Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle, Wellington (New Zealand), Kells (Ireland), Cheltenham (England), Angers (France). ​

For the Angers event, feel free (since it is free!) to listen to a reading and interpretation of the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine based on excerpts from an essay by Norman Cantor. This event will take place of Saturday, October 24th from 7:30-8 pm*. Readers are Phoebe Marshall-Raimbeau, Francoise Arnaud, Marie France Roland and Kenneth Thomas. Directed and produced by Nicole Graine. The library would like to thank the Château d’Angers for the use of their beautiful 12th-century space, so appropriate to the times of Eleanor of Aquitaine.

*All Lit Crawl events to be held on Zoom and broadcasted to Facebook Live. Click here for more information.
