From May 30 to June 2, the Passeurs de livres festival offers nearly 40 meetings and 120 authors present around the theme of nature and humans.

On the cover of the program for its 3rd edition, an open book confuses its pages with a summer landscape. The image thus formed then reconciles the central theme, Nature or human, which the festival will present under multiple approaches: historical, philosophical, sociological, anthropological or even geographical…

An abundance of meetings and future readings in anticipation, forcing an anthology, the news of which opens with a tribute to Claude Savy, co-president of the association who died suddenly in September 2023. The inauguration of an exhibition dealing with his interest for this researcher and discoverer of the plague bacillus, of Cévennes origin, Alexandre Yersin, on May 29 at 6 p.m. in the town hall, will be the opportunity to evoke the insatiable man of reading who left too quickly.
The same day, women will be discussed with a day illuminated by the commitment of Antoinette Fouque, editor and co-founder of the MLF. The festival chaired by the historian Patrick Cabanel, sponsored by the writer Geetenjali Shree (winner of the international booker prize 2022), will go beyond this relationship of duality between human and nature through the voice of the anthropologist Philippe Descola during a set hosted by the journalist Jean Lebrun with two other witnesses, the philosopher Philippe Guitton and the journalist Hélène Ferrarini.
A distorted nature will also be discussed by Camille Victor’s guests, including Thierry Paquot, author of a book dedicated to Rachel Carlson, marine biologist and major American environmental activist. Human nature and its violence will be probed during a debate hosted by Nicolas Marthins welcoming, among others, within the walls of the Alès judicial court, this is a novelty, Jean-Michel Verne, journalist specializing in criminal cases.
The question of religion, its force of integration as well as rejection will be debated, within the framework of a partnership with the daily newspaper Le Monde, during an exchange led by Florent Georgesco in the presence of the philosopher Roger Pouivet, the historian Patrick Cabanel and the writer Sherif Toubal.
The question of domination within our society will be addressed during a dialogue led by Franck Belloir, president of the festival, bringing together several guests including Théo Boulakia, doctoral student in sociology, concerning the phenomenon of mass obedience observed during the crisis health and the implementation of confinement.
Culture via poetry, an essential activity contrary to what the government decreed during the health crisis, will be discussed during a dialogue hosted by Myrtille Beranger during which the latest research on “the mystery” Louise Labbé will be revealed by the author Elise Rajchenbach.

The entire program can be consulted on the website www. lespasseursdelivres.fr. The inauguration of the festival will be held at the town hall, Friday May 31, at 3 p.m.
