In 2022, La Comédie du Livre will write a new page in its history by becoming Ten Days in May.
Montpellier Book and Ideas Festival:
- a 10-day festival, with literary and artistic proposals hosted in various cultural, heritage and natural places in the city of Montpellier and its metropolis;
- an open-air bookstore for three days, on May 20, 21 and 22, welcoming 11 independent bookstores and a good representation of publishers in Occitania, and offering meeting spaces for the general public and workshops for young people.
For this 37th edition, the formats have been redesigned: an opening to all European literature, always encounters, but many more creations crossed with other aesthetics (music, dance, cinema, video games), musical readings, cartoon concerts, translation workshops, philosophical snacks, song, a literary ball, storytelling naps for young and old.
The French actor and director Guillaume Gallienne will be present at the next Comédie du Livre.
The artist, member of the Comédie-Française, will pay tribute to Marcel Proust, who died 100 years ago, through public readings.
Other distinguished guests: Mohamed Mbougar Sarr, winner of the 2021 Goncourt Prize, François-Henri Désérable, Déborah Levy, Aude Seigne, Dragan Velikic, Antoine Wauters…, Marie-Hélène Lafon
