Discover the four books vying for the 2017 Teen Prize

Promoting reading among young audiences is one of the founding commitments of Books & Music Festival, which, since its creation in 2004, has approached literature from the angle of its links with music and creations emerging from their encounter. One of the highlights is the Prix des Ados, now run by all Normandy colleges and high schools.

Established in 2009 the Teen Price is a joint initiative of the Festival and Cultural spaces E. Leclerc of Normandy. Norman teenagers of 3rd and 2nd grade are thus initiated into literary criticism by exploring multiple universes, of which music is the common thread.

A reading committee, made up of teachers and documentalists, booksellers from Leclerc Cultural Spaces, Festival organizers and teenagers, devoted their summer to the selection of four books:

Francois Dimberton, Alexis Chabert, Gainsbourg, Jungle
David Lescot, Master, South Papers Acts
Claire Wolf, Run billie, Gallimard Youth
Philippe Nessmann, The fairy of Verdun, Youth Flammarion

In September 2016, more than 120 classes from 59 establishments registered for this new edition, i.e. 2900 students from all over Normandy!

From October to March, students discover the books offered by Leclerc Cultural Spaces, then vote for their favorite.

The prize, endowed with 1000 euros, will be awarded on Friday April 7 2017 at 10 a.m. at the Deauville International Center, during a colorful ceremony, bringing together the authors of the selection and some 1600 sworn adolescents.
