From 12 to 21 May 2023, Beyond Words Festival celebrated literature in all its glory and diversity through lively discussions, inspiring readings and powerful screenings. Acclaimed authors Muriel Barbery, Antoine Laurain and Jean-Baptiste Andrea, Laurent Mauvignier and Éric Vuillard were au rendezvous, and we celebrated the 150th anniversary of the birth of Colette with Emmanuelle Lambert and Deborah Levy. Virginia Woolf’s Orlando was also in the spotlight with Paul B. Preciado.
