La Fureur de Lire - A Passion for Reading
© Fédération Wallonie/Bruxelles

A celebration of books and reading! Discover 5 days and around 300 activities dedicated to books throughout Wallonia. In October 2016.

These activities, linked to reading and most of them free, are aimed at children, teenagers and adults and organised by the libraries and bookshops of Wallonia and Brussels. In all there will be:

  • 130 readings
  • encounters with some 60 authors and illustrators
  • some 50 exhibitions
  • dozens of competitions
  • conferences, paper chases and literary meals!

  A novel, a manga, a comic book, a thriller, a fanzine, a fantasy trilogy...

In short, anything memorable, that you enjoyed, that touched you, that gave you thrills. You want to share that read, that emotion with others?

Lots of activities to promote to the general public, the joys of books, reading and writing, will be organised by libraries and bookshops, cultural centres, various associations, etc.
