MY WORD!

Living France - - À La Maison -

There’s noth­ing quite like the power of the writ­ten word, as you’ll dis­cover at the Fes­ti­val du Mot in the town of La Char­ité-sur-Loire and at other lo­ca­tions in the depart­ment of Nièvre in Bur­gundy.

From 30 May to 3 June the fes­ti­val wel­comes artists, poets, mu­si­cians and ac­tors who all come to­gether to make the au­di­ence smile, think and re­flect on the words de­picted, whether it’s through dance, mu­sic, theatre or vis­ual arts. Even when you’re not at the fes­ti­val, lit­er­a­ture lovers will love the fes­ti­val’s home­town where you can im­merse your­self in the charm­ing book­shops, sec­ond­hand book stalls and visit the work­shops of crafts­peo­ple of the book trade.

This five-day event is a big hit with all French lan­guage lovers and wel­comes thou­sands of visi­tors ev­ery year.
