Litterary encounter : Mohamed Mbougar Sarr, 2021 Goncourt award

Evenings

Description

      Événement gratuit et ouvert à tous

      Born in Senegal in 1990, Mohamed Mbougar Sarr studied in France and quickly chose a literary career. He started by writing short stories and was awarded the Stéphane Hessel prize in 2014 for La Cale. He then published three novels, all linked to current events: the rise of islamist movements with Terre Ceinte in 2015, the tragic fate of migrants in the Mediteranean Sea with Silence du choeur in 2017, and homophobia with De purs hommes in 2018. 

      We already had the pleasure of welcoming him at Alliance Française de Paris in 2020 to talk about francophonie in Africa, alongside Hemley Boum and Marc Alexandre Oho Bambe.

      In 2021, he is the first Sub-Saharan author to be awarded the Goncourt prize for his latest book: La plus secrète mémoire des hommes.
      It is on this occasion that he will be received at Alliance Française de Paris for a literary encounter led by Bernard Magnier, journalist and francophone literature specialist.

      A book signing will be held at the end of the encounter.
