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. The event took place virtually on October 24th, with participation from the global literati in Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle, Wellington (New Zealand), Kells (Ireland), Cheltenham (England) and Angers (France).
For the Angers event, the library was proud to read and interprete the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine based on excerpts from an essay by Norman Cantor. 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.
