Bringing French Scholars to Campus

The French Authors on Tour program led by the cultural services of the French Embassy offers financial aid to American institutions, universities, libraries, bookstores, publishing houses and other venues across the United States wishing to host French authors for readings, signings and symposia.

Faculty, through our group, apply to sponsor a visit to Northwestern from a list of authors available for booking. The Book Office generally starts planning visits in June for the next academic year.

Authors who have recently visited Northwestern through the French Authors on Tour program include Pap Ndiaye and Gwenaelle Aubry.
