On Thursday 19 April at 6pm, come and join us for a talk with Amélie Lucas-Gary, the 2018 Randell Cottage French writer in residence!

Born in 1982, in Arcachon in France’s South West, she studied at the Sorbonne, graduating with degrees win cinema and history, and photography at the National School of Photography in Arles.

​Amélie Lucas-Gary comes to Wellington less than a year after the publication of her second novel, Vierge.

French magazine Lire describes Vierge as “the story of a young woman who falls pregnant having never been with a man. As her unlikely virgin pregnancy begins, Emmanuelle, 16, decides to leave her hometown, Saint-Denis, to undertake a forced journey on the roads of France…"

​Her first novel, Grotte (Cave), published in 2014, is narrated by the guardian of the Lascaux caves. Isolated on the top of a small hill, between the cave and its replica, the narrator spins a story in which reality and fantasy meld and intertwine.

Held in French (Q&A held both in French and English). Koha entry.
