President of the BnF visits Stanford

Bruno Racine, the president of the Bibliotheque nationale de France, will be visiting Stanford on Wednesday, April 8. He will give a talk entitled "Books, Libraries, and the Bibliotheque nationale de France: A Look Forward" at 4:30 in the Bender Room on the 5th floor of Green Library.

I hope that you can all attend this event - Racine has held many important French cultural positions, including head of the Centre Pompidou and of the Academie de France à Rome, and is also the author of several novels and works of non-fiction.

For more information, please see the invitation.

M. Racine will be meeting with faculty and grad students on April 8 from 10:30-11:30 in the Ida Green Room (in the Director's suite in the library, to your left as you enter the Bing Wing). If you would like to join us, please let me know.
