The Cercle des Auteurs Charentais in Paris, abbreviated as the CAC 16/17, brings together writers from the Charente departments with varied and remarkable professional backgrounds. Their attachment to the Charente region, their taste for writing and their friendship leads them each year to set a demanding challenge: to write a free-form text on a theme related to the Charente. This year, celebrating the 240th anniversary of the Treaty of Paris that sealed the end of the war and American Independence (September 3, 1783), the CAC 16/17 has chosen to address the Charentais contribution to the American Revolution with a new book “Charentais au Nouveau Monde (1777-1783)“.

Five of the book’s authors will present this 8th volume of their joint adventure “Ecrire en Charentes “, which I had the pleasure of prefacing as an adopted Charentais.

Conference in French.
