Thevenet’s FIBD Departure Confirmed

The story is pretty much as described in European sources yesterday -- the director of Europe's biggest festival, the Festival International de la Bande Dessinee at Angouleme will depart after taking another position in a city's art festival -- only now Thevenet has himself confirmed the tale to the French-language press. As pointed out yesterday by people smarter and better informed than I am, Thevenet claims he was only a consultant, so a court case for wrongful termination is possible.
