The Books library in the margins organizes  “La Nuit Blanche des livres” (Nuit Blanche of books) Friday with the academician and Goncourt award 2001 as a sponsor. More than fifty writers have an appointment at La Garenne-Colombe.

Would you like to spend a Nuit Blanche (white/sleepless night) with Academician Jean-Christophe Rufin, or, if you prefer, with Katherine Pancol, or even Gregoire Delacourt, Marc Lévy or David Foenkinos? Or, even, the five authors together? Or – why deprive yourself? – with more than fifty writers? This is possible the night of Friday, June 29th. We owe this exceptional event to the bookseller Nathalie Iris, who organizes La Nuit blanche des livres until midnight in La Garenne-Colombe (Hauts-de-Seine), on the Place de la Liberté where the Mots en marge bookstore is located.

Friday, June 29th, from 18h, the Place de la Liberté will look like Saint-Germain-des-Pres where fifty authors will move to dedicate their novels. There will be something for everyone: general literature, poles, historical novels, comics, youth … La Nuit Blanche des livres is sponsored by Jean-Christophe Rufin, author of Conakry’s Suspendu, a thriller that reveals the secrets of political life in the heart of Africa, against a background of police investigation.

The public will also be able to interact with the stars of the edition: Grégoire Delacourt with The Woman who did not grow old (JC Lattès), Katherine Pancol and his novel Three Baisers (Albin Michel) or Marc Levy who will present his new title A Girl like her (Robert Laffont).

Words on the sidelines invited David Foenkinos, with his beautiful novel Vers la beauté (Gallimard), Alice Ferney, Fabrice Humbert, Cécile Ladjali and Mazarine Pingeot. Alongside these great authors, the bookstore, faithful to its primary goal of discovering talent, showcases nuggets unearthed throughout the year such as Franck Courtès for La Dernière Photo (Lattès), Gilles Kneusé, Par heart (Du Mauconduit) and many others.

For fans of crime, a corner is reserved for them with, excusez du peu, RJ Ellory, Jacques Expert, Emmanuel Grand (who has just won the Landernau Prize of the Polar with Kisanga), Cédric Lalaury, Ian Manook, Sandrine Collette and Niko Tackian . For all readers more eager for big battles than modern stakes, big names in the historical narrative such as Jean-Philippe Guérand, Gaëlle Nohant (Bookers’ Prize 2018), Michel Moutot (Relay Prize 2018) and Grégoire Thonnat will be present.
