Book launching of Dr. Sylvie Coly

On the occasion of the Francophonie Week 2018, the Alliance Française had the honor to welcome the presentation of the new book by Dr. Sylvie Coly, "La Sénégambie, carrefour des poètes : Représentations de l’Afrique d’hier à demain."

At the crossroads that bring together two countries, two literatures, two eras, between yesterday and tomorrow, Sylvie Coly knew how to listen to a voice that rose up cajolous, criticize, vehement, but always passionate - that of a poetry determined to testify issues and problems of his time. This polyphone voice offers a vision that is not reduced to Senegal and Gambia. It is consubstantial with Africa, a vast denominator which remains common to writers even in its infinite differences.
