PROUST pour TOUS

Biography

Laurence Grenier, a pharmacist who lives in Paris, after 25 years in America, has been touched, ten years ago, by the "proustian grace" and since , besides her job, she has given countless lectures, courses, shows, in the US and then in her native country, to make people overcome their apprehension of reading Proust, and realize that Proust is for all!

Program

a presentation on Proust, from the point of view of a reader, based on my book: "The Seven Lessons of Marcel Proust", in which,through many excerpts from Proust's novel "In Search of Lost Time", I have identified seven lessons (observe, decipher society's codes, know yourself...) deducted from the short texts presented in chapters referring to twelve life's themes (society, nature, memory, fashion, death...) found in Proust's work as well as in the life of all of us.
