The fun is elsewhere. Created with only about 40 exhibitors in 2014, the unpretentious fair was this well-born child, whose healthy growth curve ended with the gathering of about a hundred writers and other artists or associations.

Extraordinary clues

Many are from the region or beyond. And most often they are issued by themselves. But just like that: when two, five or ten of these books agree with the same signature, we tell ourselves that the path of life exists!

You need a salon to discover them, to be touched, to be fertilized by them, and even to bond with them.
