Festival des Écrivains du Sud

Aix en Provence - Litterature & Poetry - In March - Dates and program to be confirmed - Free

Paule Constant, de l'Académie Goncourt, organisatrice des Journées des écrivains du Sud est la directrice artistique du Festival des Écrivains du Sud. Des conférences, des lectures, des dédicaces et des échanges permettent pendant trois jours de nourrir le débat. L'occasion unique de rencontrer ceux qui font le livre et la pensée aujourd'hui dans de nombreux lieux à Aix-en-Provence : Amphithéâtre de la Verrière, Hôtel Maynier d'Oppède, Sciences Po Aix, Hôtel de Maliverny, Bibliothèque Méjanes, Hôtel de Ville. L'ensemble des rendez-vous est en entrée libre.

Le thème de cette année est : Animaux - Animots. 60 auteurs, des philosophes, des romanciers, des sociologues, des éthologues et de simples amis de la cause animale viennent vous donner leurs points de vue. Ils vous éclairent sur la révolution fondamentale qui se joue dans ce siècle, alors que vous vous regardez avec horreur dans le miroir que vous tend une animalité qui vous interroge.
