Lecture by Édouard Louis. Followed by a Q&A led by Andreas Delsett

Few writers have championed the working class like Édouard Louis. In each of his five novels, he portrays the struggles and aspirations of an often undermined and ignored group, exemplified by a family member or himself. His literature concerns itself with the psychological obstacles to self-fulfilment and shows how the strongest contempt for the working class is often held by the people within it. Louis was also vocal in supporting the Yellow Vests movement in 2018.

Louis’ lecture will be followed by a Q&A session moderated by Andreas Delsett, author and former artistic director for the House of Literature. If you have a question for Louis, you can forward it to post@litteraturhuset.no by Thursday, November 17th, and it may very well be part of the Q&A session.
