February 21, 2022: A conversation with Agnès Cornélie

For our next conversation, we are switching gears a little bit by welcoming Agnès Cornélie, the founder of Librairie Calypso, a bookstore that opened its doors in Paris in 2020. A native of Guadeloupe, Cornélie created a space exclusively dedicated to celebrating literatures from all French Outre-Mer regions as well as the broader Caribbean. She will talk to us about the latest books to make it on her shelves and what it’s like to be the first Caribbean bookstore in Paris. Our esteemed colleagues Jennifer Boum Make and Lucy Swanson will welcome her for this conversation, which will be held in French via zoom. Register below to receive the link.
