An Afternoon with Graham Robb

Saturday, October 22 - 7:00 PM

Robb’s newest book has been decades in the making, combining scholarly research and the author’s personal anecdotes from travelling around the country by bike. Beginning with the Roman Army’s first recorded contact with the Gauls and ending with Emmauel Macron and modern France, readers are taken through an entertaining and all-encapsulating journey of French history.

His previous biographies of Victor Hugo, Balzac, and Rimbaud have all won critical acclaim and were chosen as “Best Books of the Year” by the New York Times. He has published three other books on the topic of French history: The Discovery of FranceParisians: An Adventure History of Paris, and The Discovery of Fance: A Historical Geography
