Adaptation and Inspiration

When historian Natalie Zemon Davis won the Holberg Prize for Trickster Travels, her groundbreaking work on “decentering history,” she didn’t imagine it would inspire a play. Join Dr. Zemon Davis, translator Linda Gaboriau and Antoni Cimolino, Artistic Director of the Festival and director of the play, in a discussion of the evolution of Birds of a Kind, conceived when playwright Wajdi Mouawad was asked to adapt the book for the stage.

Get your books signed! Natalie Zemon Davis and Linda Gaboriau will sign copies of their works following the event. We’ll have copies available for purchase, or you are welcome to bring your own.
