For its thirteenth edition, le Livre sur les quais will open its doors from 2 to 4 September 2022 and will offer meetings, literary cruises, stage performances and book signings on the quays of Morges and in the city.

prThe fair, whose conviviality is so much appreciated by its many visitors, will once again explore the important themes of current literature. This year, it will take on a more usual form, with 180 guest authors who will take part in the artistic programme and book signings during the three days of the fair. We will have the pleasure of welcoming novelist, poet and essayist Alain Mabanckou as Honorary President. Iceland will be the honoured country, and a delegation of Icelandic authors will be present, and the Geneva publishing house La Baconnière will be the guest publisher.
