Traveling writing residency with the libraries of Blois
Time & Location
About the Event
From February to September 2019, funded by Agglopolys (Blois, France), I explored the legacy of Montaigne's famous travel diary Voyage en Italie (1580-1581). I delivered writing workshops, talks and readings, and invited a group of local young people to contribute to an exhibition about contemporary travels. in July and August, I travelled by train throughout Europe in the footsteps of Montaigne. This trip is documented on my blog Montaigne ou l'Italie.
