Brooklyn Book Fest last year
French authors Jean-Marie Blas de Roblès, Zeina Abirachedand David Prudhomme join an impressive international roster of literary stars at the Brooklyn Book Festival this September. These three authors represent some of the most exciting and innovative literature coming out of France, in both prose and graphic fiction.
Blas de Roblès's epic novel Where Tigers are at Home has made a critical splash in the United States since it was published in translation by Mike Mitchell in March 2013 (Other Press). A Game for Swallows: To Die, to Leave, to Return,Zeina Abirached’s graphic novel account of her childhood in Lebanon in the 1980s, is a Batchelder Honor Book and recipient of a French Voices Grant. Comic book author David Prudhomme’s graphic novel Rebetiko, named the “best graphic novel of 2010” by Lire magazine, is available in English from Self Made Hero.
ElleaimeNY's Blog is the result of the homework Laurence Neron-Bancel does to schedule her visits in cities around the world and during international artfairs, get inspiration for her collages; keep records of artists; an incomplete and arbitrary guide of events in and around Westchester, New York and elsewhere. It is less public than facebook and used as tool for LMCollage and LM Studio, the New artist's residency program just recently launched in Hyeres France If there's an event you'd like considered for inclusion, send your announcement to Laurenceneronbancel@gmail.com
There is no such thing as good painting about nothing.+ I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.Mark ROTHKO
