Jean-Michel Ribes at Les Rendez-Vous Littéraires

After a successful first season that was embraced by Francophiles, Sofitel New York‘s Rendez-Vous Littéraires, a series of intimate conversations with well-known French authors, is set to return to Gaby Brasserie Française.

With a commitment to providing hotel guests and local community members with culturally unique experiences, Sofitel New York is proud to host this special literary series that highlights French culture – one of the brand’s founding pillars, which also include gastronomy, design and wellbeing.

Olivier Barrot, French journalist and TV5 Monde personality, will return as the host of the series, which is conducted entirely in French.

A man of many talents, Jean-Michel Ribes is a playwright, actor, filmmaker and screenwriter, as well as the managing director of the Théâtre du Rond-Point in Paris. Marking his success in the industry, he was awarded the Grand Prix du Théâtre by Académie Française and the Molière Award for Best Playwright in 2002, and in 2007 he was bestowed the title of Chevalier in the Légion d’honneur.

Tickets include wine, hors d’oeuvres and a book signed by the author. Space is limited, so reservations must be made in advance with Daniel Harpaz at or 646-251-9211.
