Lisez l'Europe

"the meeting place for European books" consists of a group of European cultural institutions whose mission is to present in Montreal a contemporary perspective on European literatures. 

To be able to write, you must have read, and to be able to read, you must be able to live .

Guy Debord

Founded in 2005 under the name Europe(a), Lisez l'Europe aims to be a meeting place for the various literatures which animate European cultures. It is also a meeting point for readers, authors and publishers in Quebec.

Over the years, Lisez l'Europe got local readers to discover several European authors, at the Montreal Book Fair, the Festival international de la littérature (FIL) and the Blue Metropolis festival.

Lisez l'Europe is also at the helm of a European Book club, which meets regularly in a different cultural institut in Montreal to discuss a contemporary European novel.
