Rare Book & Manuscript Library Events

Are you curious to find out who Marcel Proust was, or how to say his name? Are you 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 his books, manuscripts and letters, we’ll share favorite characters, passages, and we might even set record straight about the cork-lined bedroom!

Free and open to all; refreshments will be served.
