Illustration by Chris Bonnell, and is part of a collection of Proust Portraits currently on display at the Moleskine Store in SoHo, NYC.

New York Fans! Moleskine invite you to a series of events celebrating the centennial of Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, hosted in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.

Swann’s Way, the first volume of In Search of Lost Time, will be read in its entirety at a number of different venues in New York City. Each location will echo a major theme of the night’s text: a hotel bedroom, for the famous opening pages; a forest, for Proust’s childhood in the countryside; a theater, to evoke the writer’s fascination with actors; a nightclub, to recall Swann’s late-night searches for Odette…

Moleskine has curated live drawing events for each reading featuring students and alumni from the MFA Illustration as Visual Essay department at the School of Visual Arts.
