For 13 years, the Books & Musics Festival of Deauville has explored French literary production thanks to its literary prize and honors contemporary authors for whom music is one of the challenges of creation. After having awarded Virginie Despentes in 2016, the prize went to Frédérique Deghelt after a close debate by the jury chaired by Jérôme Garcin on March 18. The Prize is endowed with € 4 and will be awarded on Saturday April 500 during the festival.

The selection of 2017 books:

Gerard de Cortanze, Zazoous, Editions Albin Michel
Frederique Deghelt, Libertango, Editions Actes Sud
Friend Flammer, Learn to live underwater, Editions Christian Bourgois
