220th anniversay of Balzac’s birth

The 220th anniversary of Balzac’s birth leads his hometown of Tours to give the prolific wordsmith a big party (his Comedié Humaine series counts 91 novels penned in less than 20 years!).

It is a year of non-stop celebrations, all culminating in a bumper birthday weekend in May alongside a reveal of a commemorative art installation.
