Writers from the Oulipo were in New York last week conducting readings, book signings, panels, and workshops. I managed to attend three of the events:
A reading at The New School on April 1st introduced by Honor Moore and Jean-Jacques Poucel, featuring Anne F. Garreta, Herve LeTellier, Marcel Benabou, Jacques Roubaud, Daniel Levin Becker, and Ian Monk;
an April 3rd panel on "Translating Georges Perec" at NYU's Maison Francaise with Ian Monk and David Bellos, moderated by Emmanuelle Ertel;
and an April 3rd reading at Pierogi Gallery hosted by The Brooklyn Rail, featuring Monk, Garreta, Roubaud, Benabou, and LeTellier, and hosted by Donald Breckenridge.
