Talk: Sylvie Germain & Géraldine d’Amico

Sylvie Germain & Géraldine d’Amico on Judaism and Christianity

Sylvie Germain is one of the greatest writers of our time and certainly one of the most original. Winner of the Femina Prize in 1989 and the Goncourt des Lycées Prize in 1995, her work has been translated into fifteen different languages. Through her novels, which are deeply influenced by both Christian thought and the Jewish mystic, Sylvie Germain questions whether it is possible to talk to the supernatural. She will share the floor with Géraldine d'Amico, director of the Jewish Book Week and a very important figure in London's intellectual circles. This event will be an opportunity for Sylvie Germain to present her book Hidden Lives (Dedalus, translated by Mike Mitchell) and to discuss how two great cultures are interlinked at the very heart of the art of writing.
