Lisez l’Europe consists of a group of European cultural institutions whose mission is to present in Montreal a contemporary perspective on the various literatures which animate European cultures. It is also a meeting point for readers, authors and publishers in Quebec.
Over the years, Lisez l’Europe got local readers to discover several European authors, at the Montreal Book Fair, the Festival international de la littérature (FIL) and the Blue Metropolis festival.
Lisez l’Europe is also at the helm of a European Book club, which meets regularly in a different cultural institut in Montreal to discuss a contemporary European novel.
The Festival international de la littérature (FIL):
The Festival international de la littérature (FIL) is an annual French-language, multidisciplinary, national and international literary festival whose mission is to promote literature, books and reading to various audiences.
The FIL is, every year, a 10-day festival of words taking place in the Montreal area. The FIL has also become an event that shines throughout the year and the province of Quebec, as well as increasingly abroad.
