Rencontre Littéraire

Discover the world of graphic novels! 

On Saturday, November 27th at 10:00 a.m., meet French artist Jérémie Royer. Discover his brand new book "L’étrange voyage de R.L Stevenson ". It will also be a good opportunity to learn how to draw. 

Robert Louis Stevenson is one of the greatest writers of the late nineteenth century. Best known for his novels (Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), he was also a columnist and a great traveler. Even as a child he suffered poor health, which continued into adulthood. Perhaps because of this, he also had a wild imagination. Admired by his contemporaries, this is a man who has gone down in history for breathing new life into the literary genre, breaking down the boundaries between adventure novels, youth literature and “the classics”. He died at the age of just 44 in Samoa, his final resting place after a life of travel.

Romancier bien sûr, essayiste unanimement reconnu, grand voyageur, enfant puis adulte à la santé très fragile et l'imagination débordante, Robert Louis Stevenson est un des plus grands, sinon le plus grand écrivain de la fin du XIXe siècle. Admiré de ses contemporains et de ses successeurs, il n'aura eu de cesse d'écrire et de faire entrer la littérature dans la modernité, mêlant les genres, abolissant les frontières entre roman d'aventures ou « jeunesse » et « grande » littérature. Il meurt à seulement 44 ans, dans les îles Samoa, dernière étape de sa vie voyageuse.
