We are delighted to release a list of over 650 fantastic titles translated from French since January 2012, the great majority of which are original editions. We're particularly excited to see the profusion of contemporary books that have made it across the Atlantic to the American book market in recent years and even happier to note that these numbers appear to be rising each year. Our list continues to grow on a daily basis.

The 2013 cultural season was centered around art in the public space and contemporary French culture and gathered around 2000 people in different venues such as The Rialto Center for the Arts, the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and Georgia Tech's School of Architecture. Other local partners included The Center for Collaborative and International Arts at GSU, the City of Atlanta, the High Museum of Art, CORE Performance Group, the BronzeLens Film Festival as well as various French partners and contributors such as the City of Toulouse, sister city of Atlanta and involved in cultural projects for future France-Atlanta editions. This year's guests included actor Jacques Martial, artist Laurent Grasso, author and art critic Catherine Millet, pianist, singer and song-writer Lise Chemla, the Orchestre National de Lorraine, Georgia Tech's ensemble Sonic Generator, Toulouse dance companies Association Manifeste and The G. Bistaki and film-director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun. The success of the 2013 edition ensured further collaborative efforts with many of France-Atlanta's current partners and secured the implementation of future projects for the 2014 edition. French and American partnership through the continuation of cultural exchanges contribute to strengthening the existing connection between the two countries and encourages the development of new artistic initiatives in the US Southeast.
