Replay Event: Annie Ernaux and Kate Zambreno at Albertine Books!

On Monday, October 10 at 6pm, we had the tremendous honor to welcome Annie Ernaux and Kate Zambreno for a conversation on Ernaux’s body of work, including her latest novel, Getting Lost, (Seven Stories).

A majestic figure of French literature, Annie Ernaux is revered by millions of readers, and her influence on French writers may be the most profound and enduring. Intertwining the streams of France’s sociopolitical and cultural landscape together with the narrative of her life, Ernaux reinvented the genre of memoir-writing. This year, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Kate Zambreno is the author of eight books, as well as the Strachan Donnelley Chair in Environmental Writing at Sarah Lawrence College. She teaches graduate nonfiction at Columbia University and is a 2021 Guggenheim Fellow in Nonfiction.
