After a recent face-lift at the beginning of the year, this major institution of Saint-Germain-des-Prés is reinforcing its cultural identity, promoting artists and writers.
Regular encounters with artists, book signings, Parisian events and of course, the traditional literary prize ceremonies: le prix Apollinaire 2017 was awarded to the poet Serge Pey, under the sponsorship of Jacques Weber; the 86th prize of Les Deux Magots honoured Julie Wolkenstein for Les Vacances published by editions P.O.L and finally, the prix Pelléas-Radio Classique, rewarding works on music with the best literary qualities, revealed a young talented writer, Paul Greveillac, with Cadence secrète published by Gallimard. In this mythical place, once the haunt of many writers, the tradition carries on with these literary events throughout the year. In September 2018, Les Deux Magots will launch “Le lundi des écrivains” (Writers on Mondays) which will extend into the evening one Monday per month, hosting encounters between customers and artists, putting the spotlight on their literary news. Can’t wait for “back-to-school” in September!
