Friday April 13 - SCHOOL DAY
The day of April 13 will be dedicated to schoolchildren. They will be close to 3000! Dozens of workshops are offered to classes, from nursery to high school. Everything is prepared in advance thanks to close collaboration between teachers and authors. From these meetings, a unique cultural and educational event is built year after year.

The Festival attracts classes from all over Normandy; far from the preconceived ideas on a youth who would no longer read and would only listen to music quickly consumed.

The visible part of the iceberg reflects the work undertaken from the start of the school year. The choice of musical theme for the next edition of the festival is announced in November. A first bibliographic work is done, then the networks are activated in order to find the right speakers for each workshop. In a second step, the authors are invited and a schedule is organized according to the teachers' wishes, time slots, the availability of writers and places ... A meticulous and titanic work.

The icing on the cake: all ages are concerned.
