Promoting reading and access to books for young readers is one of the founding commitments of the Books & Music Festival. Besides the school day, a specific program is planned at Villa Le Cercle for children from kindergarten to high school for the duration of the Festival.

Everything is there: children's bookstore, autographers, workshops and events, dedicated discovery area ... enough to make you want to dive into books!

New for 2017:
Play and participate in many activities around reading. Creative games, puzzles, “do it yourself” workshops, playbook… you're spoiled for choice!

The weekend youth program at Villa Le Cercle

Two youth projects initiated by Books & Music:
A first with the Culture / Justice mission, set up by the Normandy Region, allowing the Festival to host in 2016 an amazing exhibition produced by young people from the UEAJ (Educational Day Activity Unit of the judicial protection of the youth), from the association L'Encrage and Hang'art.
A second, under the direction of the writer Belinda Cannone, with a group of students of Letters from the University of Caen becoming the editorial board of the Festival Gazette. Based on the geographic theme, the newspaper sheds additional light on this edition: portraits of invited authors, interviews, critics but also fiction texts. An edition of the Festival, distributed free of charge.
