During the ceremony artists from all over the world come to share their gifts of dance, poetry, writing, painting and sculpture.

Chevalier’s titles include the novels Shameful Innocence and Green Hell. Both take place in the early 1900s (1914 and 1930 respectively) and feature passion, excitement and adventure.
