Marc Levy was running a successful architecture firm when he wrote his first book--intended as a story for the man that his son would grow up to be--at age 37. Encouraged by his sister, he went on to publish it in 2000 under the name If Only it Were True (Et si c'etait vrai...) and become an instant success. Before his first book was even published, Steven Spielberg acquired film rights to the novel, and a movie version was released five years later under the title Just Like Heaven. Levy became a bestselling author overnight, writing nine more novels, including most recently Le Premier Jour and La Première Nuit, that all hit the annual bestseller list in France. His novels have been translated into 41 languages and sold more than 20 million copies, making him the most read French author in the world. The discussion will take place in French.

Event organized and co-sponsored by the French-American Alliance, a student-run organization at Columbia University
