Debut novelist Vanessa Léger will present her new book, L’Averti. Until his death in 1870, Auguste Roussel never ceased to believe in a glorious destiny for his newspaper. Three generations later, L’Averti still remains a family story, that of the Roussels, and is the eyewitness to their singular destiny in a changing world. L’Averti—La naissance d’une dynastie is the first volume of a rich family saga that will be told in a trilogy. Léger will be interviewed by French Cultural Center librarian Ingrid Marquardt, and there will be an opportunity for audience Q&A.
