Department of French and Italian (EVENTS)

“Are you curious to find out who Marcel Proust was, what books he wrote, or how to say his last name? Hint: it rhymes with “roost.” Are you already a devoted reader? Join Professor François Proulx (Department of French and Italian) and RBML curator Caroline Szylowicz for a conversation about Proust’s life and works. We will mark the 100th anniversary of his death with an exploration of books, manuscripts and letters drawn from RBML’s famed Proust collection. We’ll explain why his work still resonates for so many readers, we’ll share favorite characters, passages, and we’ll set the record straight about the cork-lined bedroom and other well-known myths.”
