Welcome to an evening with Maryse Condé, recipient of The New Academy’s Alternative Prize in Literature.
We proudly present the film “Une voix singulière”, a documentary about Maryse Condé’s life and work, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Yukiko Duke, journalist, translator and literary critic. Richard Philcox, longtime translator and husband of Maryse Condé will participate in the panel discussion with Maryse Condé, as well as Dan Israel, former CEO and publisher at Leopard förlag.
Maryse Condé is the grand lady of French language Caribbean literature; an incredible storyteller with a unique voice. Her works are important explorations of the structures of power, gender, race and class in the aftermath of colonialism. In October of this year Condé received the New Academy’s Prize in Literature in recognition of her impressive literary contribution.
