From 11 to 21 May 2022, the La Plume de Paon association is organising the tenth edition of the Festival du Livre Audio et du Podcast in Strasbourg and the Grand Est region. At the same time, the Institut français is joining forces with La Plume de Paon for the second edition of the Festival du Livre Audio en Ligne (Online Audiobook Festival), which will run until the end of May, with highlights scheduled between 5 and 14 May 2022.
The Online Audiobook Festival aims to promote audiobooks in France and internationally, with the dual ambition of ensuring the international influence of French-language audiobooks and supporting their promotion towards French-speaking and Francophile audiences, including learners of French throughout the world.
With this in mind, La Plume de Paon and the Institut français are offering educational resources to the network's publishing and French language professionals until the end of May, as well as a programme aimed at the general French-speaking public, with the Prix du Livre Audio Francophone, whose selected titles can be viewed on Culturethèque, and online meetings with publishers, authors and actors.
The Institut français is also joining forces with La Plume de Paon to offer publishing professionals from the network the opportunity to take part in the interprofessional French-language audiobook meetings organised on the fringes of the Audiobook Festival on 13 and 14 May.
For this digital festival with a strong international dimension, the Instituts français and Alliances françaises are invited to promote their programming around audio books, podcasts and readings on the festival's online platform: http://www.festivaldulivreaudioenligne.com/
