Author Marc Levy Shares his Work with Floridians
French author Marc Levy recently traveled to Florida to take part in the Miami International Book Fair and French Week Miami 2012. At the Miami Book Fair, Levy took part in a panel conversation with Rosecrans Baldwin, author of the memoir Paris, I Love You but You’re Bringing Me Down (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2012). The conversation revealed interesting insights into the authors writing process. He also shared the touching story of his father, a member of the French resistance who's life was the basis for his book Children of Freedom (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2007). While in Miami, he also visited several French classes in American public schools to talk about his work.
Levy, who currently lives in New York, used the city as the setting for his latest book, Si c'était à refaire, a detective novel based on the adventures of a New York Times reporter.
Author of thirteen novels, Marc Levy began writing only ten years ago and has since become the best selling French author in the world. His work has been translated into 45 languages and published in 32 countries. He currently lives in New York City and divides his time between America and Europe.
