Edna O'Brien awarded France's highest cultural distinction

Chers Membres, 
On Sunday last (7th March) the celebrated Irish author Edna O'Brien was awarded France's highest cultural award … Commandeur, Ordre des Arts et Lettres. The ceremony, with contributions from Mrs Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin, Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, France; the writer Colum McCann and the actor Gabriel Byrne took place online and was broadcast on the Le Cercle Littéraire website. For the next thirty days the event can be viewed on Le Cercle Littéraire's YouTube channel at …..


I understand that Le Cercle Littéraire is organising another free event in April - Irish writers living in Paris. If I can source any further information on this I shall circulate it to you nearer the time.

Prenez soin de vous et de vos proches,

À bientôt,
