Arles se livre

Arles - Littérature - From Friday 25 to Sunday 27 February 2022. - Free

The "Arles se livre" festival is an opportunity to rediscover this city through the prism of books. During three days, meetings, readings and workshops, most of them free, will be offered.

Coinciding with the winter holidays, Arles se livre offers everyone an opportunity to make a rich discovery of the city's heritage and literature, in a city on a human scale.

Through all the prisms of the book, the festival has the ambition to develop the taste for reading at all ages and to make authors known.

The old stones of Arles have long attracted lovers of words, photography and art. This city brings together many artists, authors, translators, publishers, bookbinders, booksellers, librarians, ... to meet throughout the weekend.
