Proust Weekend

Join us for a festive weekend celebrating French author Marcel Proust’s remarkable body of work through performance art, live readings, creative workshops for kids, a patisserie tasting, and more.

Discover, rediscover, and connect with Proust’s art and ideas as we mark 100 years since his passing at Villa Albertine’s headquarters, the landmarked Payne Whitney Mansion on Fifth Avenue. This gem of Gilded-Age architecture and design offers a portal into the era when the author lived. Works written and inspired by Proust will be available for purchase at Albertine Books, on the ground floor.

All events are free and open to the public with Eventbrite RSVP.
