The Brive Book Fair is the unmissable literary event after the Paris Book Fair. On this page you will find everything you need to know about the Book Fair. 

Where does the Book Fair take place?

This year and like last year, The Book Fair will take place essentially in two spaces: The Halle Georges Brassens and Place de la Guierle (1) (which are the emblematic places) and theSpace of the Three Provinces (2) (children’s literature and comics). Only spaced every 10 minutes of walking, this configuration allows for more airy paths. 

Several emblematic places in the city center will also host events during the Book Fair: the library (major exhibition and meetings), the Open, the auditorium et the Labenche Museum.
