France Signings - October 2019

9 posts in this topic

Brandon recently let it slip on Twitter that he'll be in France in October, for a signing in Paris and for an appearance at the Utopiales festival (which Google tells me runs from October 31st through November 3rd).

There hasn't been posted on the website, so I don't know any details. But are there any French Sharders lurking around who could record one or more of these events?

Yeah I would be interested in knowing the details as well. It probably wont be possible for me to go to Nantes for the festival. But I am definitely going to get a few books signed if Brandon does pass by Paris.

Schedule:

Thursday, October 31st

Visualiser le désastre
Time: 15:30
Location: Scène Shayol
Au contraire de certains politiques et même de grands média, les auteurs se font parfois lanceurs d’alerte voire prospectivistes. Comment penser l’après ? La science-fiction peut-elle aider l’être humain à faire face et assumer la catastrophe à venir ? Comment utiliser la fiction pour changer les comportements ?
Avec: Brandon Sanderson, Tristant Nitot, Nicolas Puzenat, Nicolas Viovy
Modération: Gwen de Bonneval

Signing
Time: 16:30–17:30
Location: Bookshop of the Festival (near Grand Scène)

Friday, November 1st

I want to believe
Time: 16:00
Location: Scène Hetzel
Illuminati, reptiliens, ovnis, extraterrestres en visite secrète, 11 septembre, tunnels cachés tibétains, sociétés secrètes ourdissant dans l’ombre la conquête du monde… Les théories du complot résistent férocement à toute tentative de démenti. Et si la théorie du complot était le dernier refuge de la métaphysique dans un monde désormais trop rationnel ou trop complexe pour certains?
Avec: Laura Fernández, Brandon Sanderson
Modération: Simon Bréan

Signing
Time: 17:00–18:00
Location: Bookshop of the Festival (near Grand Scène)

Les codes de création du space opera
Time: 20:30
Location: Scène Shayol
Popularisé à coups de sabre laser et de tricorder par Star Wars et Star Trek, le space opera pourrait se définir par des intrigues épiques, dramatiques ou parfois intimistes, dans des cadres spatiaux et des situations politiques à l’échelle de la galaxie. Du space opera de l’âge d’or à Ann Leckie ou
Beckie Chambers, le code a-t-il évolué ?Avec: Mathieu Bablet, Brandon Sanderson, Pierre Bordage
Modération: Denis Bajram

Saturday, November 2nd

Rencontre avec Brandon Sanderson
Time: 16:00

Les sciences humaines du futur

Dans la série Fondation, la psychohistoire prévoyait les grands mouvements des populations de la galaxie et dans Eifelheim, des historiens du futur tentent de comprendre la disparition jadis d’un village.

sciences humaines?

I'm going to Paris signing tuesday. How do you get a question answered in the book? Do you write it down in the book or on a piece of paper, or just ask him to write it down?

Either will work. I'd recommend writing it down for a couple of reasons. One, less of a chance of Brandon misunderstanding your question. Two, we'll have the exact wording if there's no recording; written-down answers tend to be short and cryptic, and it's nice to have the exact question that was asked.

Thanks! Would you recommend writing it in the book or on a seperate piece of paper? Basically, what's the most convenient for Brandon

I don't think it makes a difference. If you write it in the book, you should make sure it's on the same page that he's gonna be signing, so he doesn't have to turn pages.

I did not know how to do it, I had to catch my metro back, so I only got mine, which I messed up by making it too broad.

"Yes, but a  lot  happened because of the Shattering."
