The film “Call Me by Your Name” was one of the most successful films of 2017, garnering an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. The movie was based on the best-selling novel of the same name written by André Aciman, who will deliver the Heinz Bluhm Lecture on Oct. 4 at 5 p.m. in Higgins Hall, room 300. Aciman will discuss the process by which a novel is transformed into a movie script. Aciman is also the author of Harvard Square and Eight White Nights, the memoir Out of Egypt, and the essay collections False Papers: Essays on Exile and Memory and Alibis: Essays on Elsewhere. His work has appeared in the New York Times, the New Yorker, the New York Review of Books, the New Republic, Granta, and the Paris Review, as well as in several volumes of The Best American Essays. He is the Distinguished Professor of Comparative Literature and French at the Graduate Center of City University of New York.
