March 19, 2009: Meeting with Anita Desai invited by ERCLA - Université de la Sorbonne Paris IV (Vanessa Guignery et François Gallix)

The great Indian writer Anita Desai whose very famous novel In Custody is currently on the program of the French exam for teachers ("agrégation") was invited to talk about her book and about her work as a writer yesterday evening (March 18) at Ecole Normale Supérieure (rue d'Ulm) in Paris by Professor Vanessa Guignery and Professor François Gallix from the university of La Sorbonne-Paris IV.

Here are a few video sequences and photos taken during this very interesting discussion and meeting. The sound is not very good, you might need to use loud speakers and/or increase to volume. Switch to Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox (and vice versa) in case these videos do not work. I apologise for the poor quality of these videos and pictures.
