The author, who joins four other French authors in the festival, will appear in conversation with the New Yorker‘s Adam Gopnik at the 92nd St Y. Le Clezio has produced 30 novels, and when he was awarded the prize last year the Nobel judges called him an “author of new departures, poetic adventure and sensual ecstasy, explorer of a humanity beyond and below the reigning civilization.” Tickets available here.
