From 30 November to 5 December 2022, the fair will host 400 exhibitors, publishing houses and book professionals, and is expecting 170,000 visitors. This year’s programme includes almost 3,000 signing sessions, an exhibition dedicated to Europe and the Mediterranean area and a program of meetings on the two stages of the fair around the theme “Desires of the World”.
In this teeming event, we would like to draw your attention to the sparkling French-speaking belgian creation; and this year the fair’s program has awarded three French-speaking belgian titles:
– Hekla et Laki by Marine Schneider published by Albin Michel
– On joue à cache-cache? by Léa Viana Ferreira published by Cotcotcot
– VilleVermine: le tombeau du géant by Julien Lambert published by Sarbacane
The fair has also invited Aylin Manço, Julien Lambert, Carl Norac, Violaine Lison, Thomas Lavachery and Caroline Lamarche to take part in the official program of the fair.
Come and discover the crème-de-la-crème of French-speaking belgian creation and publishing on our booth (located in E24) on the first floor of the fair and run by Librairie Wallonie-Bruxelles in Paris. You will find a wide panorama, from early childhood toy books to children’s albums, from young-adult novels to children’s imagiers and from comic books to graphic novels. This belgo-stand also offers a signing schedule concocted with eclecticism and malice. You will meet Maïté Carranza, Benoît Jacques, Un faux graphiste, Nina Six, Aniss El Hamouri, Myriam Dahman, Mélanie Rutten, Marie Mahler, Léa Viana Ferreira and Almudena Pano.
The fair also welcomes many stands of French-Speaking belgian publishers:
- À pas de loups in E20,
- The children’s philosophy magazine Philéas & Autobule in A18a,
