FESTIVAL BOOKS & MUSIC

Every spring, the Deauville Books & Music Festival honors writers inspired by music. Dozens of authors and musicians animate this festival on a different theme each year. Continuing the path initiated in 2013 of exploring foreign literatures, the 2016 edition will be dedicated to Italy. It places itself under the gaze of the brilliant Italian fabulist, father of illustrious heroes - Italo Calvino - and remains faithful to its values: sharing, openness, discovery and demand.

30 meetings, 60 authors, musicians, artists, guest editors
Meetings, workshops, musical readings or concerts, you are at the heart of the Festival and its delightful program. Often unpublished, always rare and intimate moments.
The Viva Italia Program
A look at the literary creation of Italy today, multiple and committed, poetic and political, with the invitation of recognized figures of transalpine letters but also to a new generation of writers concerned about the profound changes going through their country.
Roulez jeunesse program
A place - the youth area - multiple workshops and meetings and a long-awaited school day for nearly 2000 students.
In the wind, the program of French literary news
