Following official information received yesterday pertaining to the Plan Vigipirate, applicable to all governmental and non-governmental institutions with a link to France, the  Alliance Francaise of Washington DC reserves the right to ask first-time visitors for their government-issue ID when they enter the building.

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding. This procedure is temporary but will remain in place until further notice.

Des Mots et des Hommes (Of Words and Men)

Guess what country has received the most Nobel Prizes in Literature…? France, bien sûr! La langue de Molière et de Racine continues to inspire hip and upcoming French authors such as Nathalie Azoulai (Titus n’aimait pas Bérénice), Olivier Bourdeaut (En attendant Bojangles) and of course Andreï Makine, Russian-born author who chose France as his home, writes in French (Le testament français, Le pays du lieutenant Schreiber, and many more), and is now the youngest member of the Académie française. The Alliance Française will be hosting such acclaimed and renowned French and Francophone authors in this series.
