Balzac’s house is in for European Heritage Days 2019 in Paris. Recently renovated, this place if one of Honoré de Balzac’s rare houses you can discover today. You’ll visit a museum returning on the life of the famous French writer, as well as the office where he corrected the entire “La Comédie Humaine” [The Human Comedy]. A go-to address for French literature fans.
For European Heritage Days, Balzac’s House offers you a “Carnet de voyage d’hier à aujourd’hui”, that is to say a journey from yesterday to today, a drawing workshop during which you can draw watercolor sketches, a tour guided by artist Angélique Ivanov. You’re expected then on September 21, 2019 at 3:30 p.m.
And if you have a talent for the French language and if you have a sharp tongue, meet on Sunday September 22, 2019 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to take part in a Verbal Joust workshop. Pro et Contra will be provided by Les Tréteaux de France, Centre Dramatique National. The aim is to defend a position and support an argument during an oratory joust and win the jury’s vote. A wonderful occasion to show off your speaker talents in front of people!
