Carole Trebor

Guest of the 2018 Books & Music Festival

Before starting to write for young people, Carole Trébor has worked as an historian, specialized in Russian cultural history, and director of documentaries (Ina.fr, Arte.tv, Youhumour.com, Silence ça pousse on France 5). After writing singed theatre plays (Merci l’ours, Noctambule, Au cirque Fanfaron), she started to write novels for teenagers.

Her history-fantasy trilogy Nina Volkovitch, taking place in Russia in 1948, has been cheered by teenagers and critics (twelve literary prizes in 2013-2014). In 2015, she was one of the authors of the saga U4, a real phenomenon in teenagers’ literature.  Being Parisian, she has written a volume dedicated to Jules, the survivor, who lives in the capital (U4. Jules by Nathan-Syros).

After exploring this post-apocalypse universe, she decided to focus again on the history-fantasy genre she loves so much with Lumière, Le voyage de Svetlana

Révoltées is the first purely historical novel she has written for the centenary of the Russian revolution.
