FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.
Saturday 13 May 2017 at 6:00 PM (Paris time GMT+1) at the Librairie des Editions Tituli in Paris., the Association “Les Mots Parleurs” (Speaking Words) invites us to the Reading of excerpts from Democracy in America, a book by Alexis de Tocqueville. The Reading will be followed by a light meal.
To the question "What gave you the idea to read excerpts of the work of Alexis Viscount of Tocqueville?" The actress Valerie Delbore replies “I was thinking to a text to read in the wake of the French elections, when our partner Librairie Editions Tituli offered Tocqueville's book Democracy in America”. "I immediately thought that this was The book!” concludes Valerie. Of course, she adds "Tocqueville's work is somehow controversial. And this is precisely why these excerpts are interesting". The bookshop of the Publisher "Editions Tituli" is one of the many venues where the lovers of the Valerie Delbore work come to hear Valerie reading the works of well known and less well known writers, from France and other countries.
Valerie Delbore, French actress from the Conservatoire National d'art dramatique, founded "Les Mots Parleurs" (Speaking words) in 1997. She created her first association in Paris and the second in the beautiful landscape of Semur en Auxois in the French Burgundy. Apart from the many events organized to bring to voice an author's writing for the public, the associations organize training sessions around the power of reading in full voice.
To illustrate the meaning of her work, Valerie Delbore explains: "In lieu of the common theater performance, my desire is to represent the meanings. My goal is giving to hear and see the multiplicity of senses, My objective is as well to increase the public awareness to the writing, the track, the mark, the memory, the substance of literary creation, and the perception of the meanings that area attached to it."
Remember the date: May 13, 2017 at 6 PM (Paris time GMT+1). The event is organized in partnership with Benedicte et Gregoire Hurbeau who offer to discover their Chateau Moulin Canon Fronsac.
