For the last Philo Bistro of the year, embark on a fascinating journey into the art of writing with Nicolas Fargues and Elisa Shua Dusapin, two of the most respected writers of their times. Our dynamic duo du soir, authors of the recently published *La Péremption* and *Le vieil incendie*, will share tales and insights about the art of writing in a rare face-off format that promises to be rich and insightful.
