Author of the internationally bestselling thriller "The Perfect Nanny," Leila Slimani is the first Moroccan woman to win France's most prestigious literary prize, the Prix Goncourt.
 

She is French president Emmanuel Macron's personal representative for the promotion of the French language and culture. She is also a journalist and frequent commentator on women's and human rights.

 

Leila Slimani will present her prizewinning first novel-a captivating exploration of addiction, sexuality, and one woman's quest to feel alive. "Adèle appears to have the perfect life: She is a successful journalist in Paris who lives in a beautiful apartment with her surgeon husband and their young son. But underneath the surface, she is consumed by an obsession and soon becomes ensnared in a trap of her own making...".

Moderated discussion with Dr. Lionel Cuillé followed by a book signing.
