Partir en Livre honours reading and books. This event promotes reading and books as a means of gettting away from it all even for children who cannot go on a summer vacation. This major children’s’ book fair is organized by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, Centre national du livre, with the support of Salon du livre et de la presse Jeunesse in Seine-Saint-Denis.

Free activities around books, reading and writing are available on site on the initiative of the various partners (bookshops, publishers, libraries, etc.).
