With the slogan Mon livre, mon uniVERT, the SLO is offering its many visitors of all ages some thematic activities as well as a large number of activities intended to encourage literacy and the most current literature. In the program : round tables, shows for children, comic book activities, contests, book launches, meetings with the authors, public readings...
Bénédicte Guettier took an applied arts program in school, and then graphic arts at l’Ecole Supérieure d’Art Graphique de Paris. Her talent enabled her to illustrate the books that she wrote for young children, as well as books written by other authors. Her style is vibrant and dynamic, much like her storytelling. The well-known character, Trotro, a small malicious and turbulent donkey, has been a part of Bénédicte Guettier’s imagination for a long time. She is the author of many books published by Gallimard, L’Ecole des loisirs and Casterman. She also works with newspapers and magazines, as well as advertising agencies.
Yannick Monget is founder and advocate of the Ankaa group, which conceives and develops ambitious projects for the protection of the environment in Europe. He is also the author of many engaging science fiction novels, such as "Rencontre" (Bénévent) and "Gaïa" (France Europe Editions). In 2006, Yannick Monget published "Demain, la Terre..." (La Martinière) in which he probes the future of our planet and the threats that weigh on it. Using specialm effects, for the first time ever, his book is a visual presentation of six scenarios inspired by the works of the IPPC (Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change) on the future of the Earth’s climate.
