The 16th Francophone Book Fair of Beirut

Within the framework of Beirut World Book Capital 2009, the 16th Francophone Book Fair of Beirut promises to be absolutely exceptional: with the Ile-de-France as guest of honor, it will be home to more than 150 French authors – among them, the 2008 Nobel Prize Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio – and will offer a packed program of meetings, debates, readings, activities and exhibitions for school children, professional days, a pavilion dedicated to Francophone literature of the south, the award of the five continents, and many other events, particularly the arrival in the harbor of Beirut of the boat of the operation “Ulysse 2009”.
