The France Pavilion highlights the plurality of literary creation

Attentive to the remarkable renewal and extreme plurality of forms and content witnessed by literary creation in Arabic and French, the France Pavilion at the 28th International Publishing and Book Fair (SIEL), celebrates the deep cultural ties between French and Arabic speaking voices.

While looking forward to participating in this 28th edition of SIEL alongside the Moroccan Ministry of Culture, Youth and Communication, the French diplomatic representation in Morocco intends to honor Editions Actes Sud, in particular through its prestigious Sindbad collection which has just celebrated its 50th anniversary.

The Actes Sud editions were the first, in France, to have opened wide the doors of literature, poetry and more broadly of Arab culture to the French-speaking readership, recalls a joint press release from the French Embassy in Rabat and the French Institute Morocco (IFM).

In this context, it is pointed out, the French pavilion, organized by the IFM, will showcase the activities of the entire network of twelve branches of the Institut français where the public will be able to discover the extent of its linguistic, cultural and digital offer.

A varied program of events and workshops, combining books and digital innovation, will thus be offered every day to young audiences.

The pavilion will also house a dozen independent French-speaking Moroccan publishers, and will host the Actes Sud editions honored this year.

Similarly, meetings in reading concerts, creative workshops in literary reveries, readings in discussions, for 10 days, SIEL traces paths to meet literature and what it tells us about the world.

About twenty authors, including Yasmine Chami, Joumana Haddad, Roland Gori, Nancy Huston, In Koli Jean Bofane, Charles Berberian, or François Atlas, will be invited to talk to us about the possibilities and the margins that fiction and the art, where words, images, artistic gestures outline new escapes.
