Lit Crawl! Reading of the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine

Lit Crawl! Reading of the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine | 24/10/2020 | 7:30 -8:00

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.
