Lit Crawl! Reading of the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine
Lit Crawl Global 2020
In 2020, many of the Lit Crawls in our worldwide network were cancelled due to Covid-19, so we 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).
Since 2008, 14 cities worldwide have launched affiliated Lit Crawls. By partnering with a variety of organizations, many of them the leading literary entities in their regions, each Lit Crawl bolsters the local literary scene and captures its city’s unique flavor — all while getting book lovers and revelers alike drunk on words.
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 adapted 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-centruy space, so appropriate to the times of Eleanor of Aquitaine.
