Michèle Rakotoson

Author, French
Michèle Rakotoson is one of the most critically acclaimed authors in Madagascar. She is a master storyteller, one who can just as easily dress herself in the garb of a French writer as a Malagasy one. In addition to her writing, she focuses most of her time on championing the next generation of Malagasy writers, by organizing readings, salons, and conferences in Madagascar. In 2012, the Académie française awarded her its Grande médaille de la Francophonie.
