Your favourite English speaking writers in Morges for Le livre sur les quais

Come to Morges to meet over 280 international writers (speaking both in French and English) performing on the shores of Lake Geneva during the weekend of the 6th – 8th of September. Amélie Nothomb and Philippe Forest are the Co-Presidents of this year’s festival, and Spain is its Guest Country of Honour.
Celebrated literary stars and debut writers, poets and translators, authors of crime fiction, travel writing, non-fiction and books for children and teenagers will give talks, readings and join panel discussions. The visitors have access to an extremely varied programme: more than two hundred sessions, round table discussions, debates, conversations, talks, book signings, readings and films organised simultaneously in various locations around the beautiful old town of Morges or during cruises on Lake Geneva.
