French Academic Erik Orsena seduces his Australian audience


Prix Goncourt winner and member of the prestigious French AcademyErik Orsenna was in Melbourne on Wednesday 18th of February at the Alliance Française Melbourne.

If the title of his lecture was ‘’The future of large rivers”, the content of his address was very rich and diverse. From Cyranno de Bergerac to Mali, musing on questions about identity and the need to constantly reinvent oneself, his brilliant speech put the audience under a spell.
