A total of 94 authors and 17 guests of honour are expected on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd March at the Antoine 1er showroom, on the occasion of the 8th Book Fair.

One thing is sure: for the Association Rencontres Littéraires Fabian Boisson, the organiser for four years of the Book Fair of Monaco, the Principality is a country where it is good to read!

This year, nearly a hundred authors will enter the exhibition hall of the Quai Antoine 1er. And alongside them, 17 guests of honour, including Patrick Poivre d’Arvor or Christophe Barbier.

The program: debates, dedications and conferences. Goal? Develop literature and cultural exchanges of any style, bringing together writers for moments of dialogue and sharing with readers.

Although the majority of professionals come from neighbouring departments, the Monegasque authors will also be in the spotlight: “We favour local authors, it’s very important,” says Yvette Gazza-Cellario, the president of Les Rencontres littéraires.

This year, specialists will also add their touch: “Two Monegasque artists will dress the big hall of 500 m2 of the Quai Antoine 1er. They will also build an ephemeral sculpture announcing the event”.

Aspiring writers will also be present. Pollution of the oceans, artificial intelligence, or global warming, it is on these three main themes that high school students will think. A list of winners will then be established, and the winners will have the chance to participate in a signing session with the professionals.
