Lecture on La Cache (Editions Stock), Winner of the 2015 Prix Femina.

La Cache tells the story of the two children of the Boltanski family, Christian and Luc, during  WWII. They don’t go to school and never celebrate their birthdays. For almost two years, they live between the first and second floor of the Boltanski’s apartment, hidden by their parents. Filled with humor and tenderness, the story follows the joyful and traumatic events of a one-of-a-kind family, both afraid and curious of everything that surrounds them.

Christophe Boltanski will also be at Duke University on September 28th for another lecture on La Cache. On October 3rd, Albertine Bookstore will organize a conversation on Boltanski's novel with B.A.M. Director of Humanities Violaine Huisman. Finally, on October 5th, he will be at New York University for a discussion about his work as a war and foreign correspondant for Libération and Le Nouvel Observateur.

Sponsored by the Poynter Fellowship in Journalism, The Department of French, The Yale Center for the Study of Antisemitism, and the Whithey Humanities Center.
