April 3 & 4, 2020 - Center International de Deauville & Le Point de Vue
Books & Music,
discover the 2020 selection!

Created in 2004, the Books & Music Festival is the literary meeting of the city of Deauville which opens up to the often surprising discovery of words and notes. Les Franciscaines - the future showcase of the festival - and its teams being set up in April, the 2020 edition of Books & Music will focus mainly on its two prizes: the City of Deauville Prize and the Teen Prize with the day dedicated to school audiences.

Created from the start of the festival, the Prix de la Ville rewards each year a novel inspired by music. The winning book is chosen by a jury of novelists, musicians and journalists gathered around Jérôme Garcin.

The selection :
- Akira MIZUBAYASHI, Broken soul, Ed. Gallimard
- Lola GRUBER, Three concerts, Ed. Phébus
- Julien DECOIN, Turntables, Seuil Editions
- Eric FAYE, Chopin's telegraphist, Ed. Threshold
- Alexis RAGOUGNEAU, Opus 77, Ed. Viviane-Hamy
- Karol BEFFA, Guillaume METAYER and Aleksi CAVAILLEZ, Ravel, A musical imagination, Ed. Seuil-Delcourt
in partnership with Espaces Culturels E.Leclerc

Encouraging meetings between young people and literature by promoting their access to books and reading is a major objective of the festival. An initiative whose success continues to grow: in 2019, more than 5000 Norman students agreed to read the four selected works and to vote to award the Teenagers Prize 2020.

The selection :
- Rachel Corenblit A little closer to the stars, Ed. Bayard
- Mylene Moutin Yiddish Tango, Ed. Gulf stream
-Olivier Martinelli, My apache nights, Ed. Robert Lafont
- Natalie Somers Diary of an amnesiac, Ed. Didier Jeunesse
The Prix du roman
non published

The path to publishing a manuscript is often complex and many texts are refused by publishing houses. What if among them were nuggets? It is in this spirit that the Novice team imagined the Unpublished Novel Prize in collaboration with Espaces Culturels E. Leclerc de Normandie, Les Franciscaines and the journal Ouest-France.

The winner will be announced at an award ceremony and book launch on October 10, 2020 at the Franciscaines.

The 2020 call for applications is launched and you can send your texts accompanied by a cover letter until midnight Saturday February 8 to the following address:

So… your manuscripts!

Anna Magdalena Bach's little book
Often associated with Laurent Pelly's shows, Agathe Mélinand divides her activity between the theater and the Opera. His passion for music and his storytelling had earned us, not long ago in the cultural season of Deauville, a beautiful tribute to Erik Satie. Jean-Sébastien Bach, this time is revealed to us through the prism of Anna Magdalena, his wife in a musical show which associates two actresses, a pianist and a harpsichordist.

Love in words # 10

It is also gratifying to hear thanks to Anne-Marie Philipe the lover with multiple lovers, to express her flame and to discover by the voice of Jérôme Garcin, the flames of Alfred de Musset.
