Join us for a very special visit by French novelist, poet, and essayist Pierre Alféri to celebrate the Month of Poetry! Alféri is one of the most innovative French poets of today. His books include poetry -- Les Allures naturelles, Le Chemin familier du poisson combatif, Kub Or, Sentimentale journée, La Voie des airs -- as well as novels -- Fmn and Le cinéma des familles, and most recently Les Jumelles. He has also written lyrics for the actress and signer Jeanne Balibar and completed a commissioned work last year for the Paris public transportation system consisting of 6x3 feet calligrams on translucent walls. Born to French philosopher Jacques Derrida and psychoanalyst Marguerite Aucouturier, Alferi carries on both a rich familial and cultural heritage while inscribing his own place in the contemporary literary landscape.
