On the 30th November 2021 Annie Ernaux was selected as one of the 12 inaugural international writers to join the Royal Society of Literature’s International Writers programme, a new award recognising the contribution of writers across the globe to literature in English, and the power of literature to transcend borders and to bring people together. At a time of rising nationalism, RSL International Writers celebrates the many ways in which literature can shape a future world. Each year new writers will receive this life-long honour and be invited to join the RSL’s International Writers, forming an ever-expanding global community of authors.
