  • Friday 28th June - Until Sunday 30th June
Once again, following successes in 2016 and 2018, the Society will be inviting leading Hugo experts from France, USA and UK to visit Guernsey and to speak about aspects of Victor Hugo’s life and work, particularly while in exile in our island.

The Victor Hugo in Guernsey Conference 2019 will be taking place between Friday 28th June 2019 and Sunday 30th June 2019 and will be themed to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the publication of Hugo’s L’Homme qui rit – The Laughing Man. 

Written in Guernsey, this story has been the inspiration behind a host of international adaptations and characters such as the Broadway stage play “Clair de Lune”, a musical adaptation “The Grinning Man” at the Bristol Old Vic and London West End and as the comic book character, The Joker, in Batman.
