In 2023, Suzanne Savoy translated and performed an in-person reading in English of Christine de Pizan's Le Livre du Dit de Poissy for scholars attending the 58th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan. A love-debate poem of over 2,000 lines, Le Dit de Poissy was read in three installments of over thirty minutes each, with background music performed on Medieval lute and recorder by Gaven Dianda.

Audience members commented on the liveliness and musicality of the verse and on how entertained and engaged they were by the story.

Savoy is preparing the translation for publication in print and as a voice recording.
