Workshops for children and meetings with artists: here is the program of the Giennois Young Adult Book Festival

It is often said that youth is shaped by travel. Couldn’t the same be said of literature? At least that is the aim of the Giennois Young Adult Book Festival, which takes place in April and May.

The project is supported by the Gien media library and the cultural action service of the Gien community.

Turned upside down by Covid-19, the festival returns to its traditional format for a seventh edition themed on illustration. The event takes place at the community level and begins with workshops led by librarians.

These first meetings, scheduled until the end of April, highlight the artist Hervé Tullet “and his whimsical universe”, specifies Alexandra Roland, director of the Gien Mediathek. One instruction: let your imagination run wild. Glue, tear, scratch, draw, cut…
