50 years after the tragic death of Albert Camus, the world’s fascination surrounding him is still alive. Perhaps because the pied-noir author was one of the youngest writers to receive the Nobel Prize in literature, or perhaps because his novels continue to define what it is to be a man at the end of the 20th century.
World-renowned scholars will gather in Chicago to discuss (in French) the legacy of Camus and answer audience questions.
