Morges Literary Festival,
Le livre sur les quais

From 1st-3rd September 2017 Morges will host 280 French and English speaking writers. Established literary stars and new writers, essayists, poets and translators, authors of crime fiction, travel writing and books for children will give talks, readings and round table discussions – some of them taking the form of a literary cruise.

In its 8th year, the festival takes place in Morges, a picturesque old town on the shore of the Lake Geneva with a view over the Alps, and not far from Lausanne and Geneva. With a selection of cafes, restaurants, and historical buildings Morges is a lovely place to visit and spend some time.

After the phenomenal success of the 2016 festival, which attracted more than 40,000 visitors, this year’s event promises to be even more stimulating.
