Not-to-be-missed literary events in Paris

Effractions Literature Festival - March 8 to 12, 2023

As our history and also our collaboration with the Écume des Pages bookstore in Saint-Germain-des-Prés shows, we are also lovers of literature, writing, poetry... That's why we would like to tell you about Effractions , the contemporary literature festival located at the Center Pompidou.

Organized by the BPI, this event offers its fourth edition over a period of 5 days. Like us, Effractions honors literature; more specifically contemporary literature and its correlation with reality. From Sappho to Montaigne, Maupassant or Ernaux, literature is impregnated with the different colors of the world to draw its quintessence; to question what is most hermetic among realistic problematics.

During this event, visitors will have the privilege of discussing with a large selection of authors, notably Goncourt prizewinners, of participating in various workshops in order to question the appropriation of reality by artists, of admiring the way in which virtuosos draw on reality to bring it out in works of fiction. This literary culture center is designed for all profiles, from insiders to connoisseurs and is accessible free of charge.
