French literature, loud and proud!

Beyond Words festival of literature is back for a 6th edition to remember!
From 16 to 22 May, the Institut français goes Beyond Words to cross borders and genres and takes us on a literary journey through lively discussions, powerful readings and inspiring live performances and screenings.
Audiences can expect the latest and hottest publications from both sides of the Channel and a great line-up including acclaimed authors and new voices.
This year, our programme celebrates literature in all its glory and diversity, giving centre stage to feminist novelists in particular. It also pays tribute to Proust and Molière, and marks the 60th anniversary of the Independence of Algeria with several debates and films.
Discover new stories, enjoy screen adaptations, hear your favourite authors, revisit Molière, have your book signed, take part in the discussion, share your passion for literature: join the Beyond Words Festival!
