The Lire association in Pont-l’Evêque (Calvados) is organizing its seventh year Book fair Saturday, September 24, 2022 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the indoor market. “Our reputation is established, the inhabitants of Pont-l’Evêque and the region are waiting for this quality cultural event”, emphasizes Elisabeth Belna, president of the association.

Fifty authors

Like every year, about fifty authors will be held under the covered market. “A very diverse range of authors, from children’s authors, detective fiction, about the region and general literature,” introduces Elisabeth Belna. The public will also find authors, some of whom return every year “as if for a friendship date”: for example Jérôme Garcin, Jean Rouaud or Jean-Michel Delacomptée. The common thread of each edition: to offer moments of encounter; “We take pride in honoring each author and coming to share.”


Thus, many high-profile events will be organized concurrently with these initiations.
