Édouard Louis is the author of two novels translated into two dozen languages and the editor of a scholarly work on the social scientist Pierre Bourdieu. Compared to Jean Genet by the Paris Review, his work has also appeared in the New York Times and Freeman's. His bestselling debut novel, The End of Eddy (FSG), is an extraordinary autobiographical portrait of growing up in his impoverished home village, Hallencourt. His second novel, History of Violence (forthcoming in English), cemented his status as one of his generation's most celebrated voices and continues to spark debate about social inequality, sexuality, and power.

On January 31st, Édouard Louis will join the Ivy+ LGBTQA alumni community to tackle these questions from a unique angle: a comparative one between France and America. As a recent writer-in-residence at Dartmouth and having lectured at Yale and MIT, Édouard Louis brings a dynamic perspective to how the interlocking challenges of social inequality and sexuality manifest in the two countries that, together, define our alumni club. The evening provides an exceptional moment to situate Édouard Louis' work in the history of Franco-American relations - and especially in the fertile role LGBTQ authors have played in that intellectual exchange.


This event is co-sponsored by the Harvard and Yale Clubs of France, in partnership with Yale GALA, Inc.,  Harvard Gender and Sexuality Caucus, FFR/Princeton BTGALA, and Stanford Pride.

It is graciously hosted at the Mona Bismarck American Center with their partners Shakespeare and Company and Télérama.
