Sport and books go well together, as illustrated by the set of “Au Bonheur des Livres” this week which welcomes the president of the CNL (National Book Center) Régine Hatchondo, as well as Louis Chevaillier, author of an essay as captivating as it is unexpected The Literature Olympics (Ed. Grasset).

We also found the great documentarian and writer, Jérôme Prieur, known in particular for his Corpus Christi series, but who was also interested in the Olympic Games of Berlin, the 1936 Games (Ed. La Bibliothèque) and to a somewhat forgotten intellectual who was the spectator, Louis Gillet, with the work Look and see nothing (Ed. Seuil).

Guillaume Durand will speak with the president of the CNL, Régine Hatchondo to discuss the “Partir en Livre” operation, a magnificent festival aimed at young audiences dedicated this year to the theme of sport, for its tenth anniversary (from June 19 to July 21, 2024). On this occasion, she will recall the tremendous work carried out, over the long term, by the CNL to promote reading and authors…

Among these authors, Louis Chevaillier will detail the forgotten adventure of cultural Olympics, very real, formerly devoted to literature, and Jérôme Prieur will invite us to think about the links which continue to exist between the sporting spectacle and its geopolitical implications… even if, fortunately, we are no longer in Berlin in 1936!

Sport, literature, history: by bringing together writers and personalities who are also fascinating passers-by, “Au Bonheur des Livres” will once again invite us to think about the issues of our time.
