Feel free to ask questions about his creative process, inspirations, and the themes that animate his captivating works. Immerse yourself in exciting exchanges that will help you better understand his unique literary universe. 

After the presentation and discussions, we invite you to share a friendly aperitif, creating the perfect atmosphere for new encounters and animated discussions with other literature enthusiasts.
