CYF 072 — mercredi 5 mai 2021 — Rencontre avec Djamel Cherigui
Last Saturday, I went to Nathalie Iris’s bookshop, Mots en marge, in La Garenne-Colombes. Nathalie suggests books to read on my other podcast One Thing In A French Day.
She’s a very active bookseller and she’s well-known in the neighbourhood. Her bookshop is located on the place de Liberté which is also the place du marché.
She often organises « dédicaces », book signatures, and in June « la nuit blanche du livre » a book fair that finishes late at night and where you can meet famous authors.
There was a book signature last Saturday and it was also the market day.
I had bought and partially read the book of Djamel Cherigui, Sainte Touche, so I was happy to go to the signature. The style of the author is clearly too hard to read for someone who is learning French, but I think meeting an author is always interesting.
I had my mic with me that day, and Djamel Cherigui agreed to talk about his work for the podcast.
I was very pleased to talk to him because he’s a very nice man, and a true passionate of literature. He’s a kind of media hit in France because he’s very talented and because he runs a grocery in the North of France. It’s unexpected for a writer.
So, today You are going to hear a short version of the interview with Djamel Cherigui.
My name is Laetitia, I’m French, I live just outside Paris and I share with you a small slice of my daily life here in France. I have also been running the podcast One Thing In A French Day since 2006
