Lire la Nature
5th edition of the book fair
Launched in 2017 by the François Sommer Foundation, the Reading Nature book fair will take place on the weekend of January 21-22, 2023 at the Museum of Hunting and Nature. This 5th edition will be like every year the opportunity for the public to meet the greatest writers, researchers, authors of general and youth literature illustrating the relationship of man to nature.

For two days, meetings and debates, screenings of films and documentaries, signing sessions, reading workshops and creative activities for children will follow one another in the heart of the Marais, in the superb setting of the hotels of Guénégaud and Mongelas. This edition will be exceptional for two reasons: on the one hand because the Museum will exhibit rare manuscripts by Maurice Genevoix, cantor of nature, recently acquired by the National Library of France - partly thanks to sponsorship from our Foundation -, on the other hand because 2023 will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the death of François Sommer (1904-1973), companion of the Liberation, precursor and visionary who devoted his life to the enhancement and protection of living and wild nature. An opportunity to return to this extraordinary personality and more broadly, to the French history of nature protection.
