For its 22nd edition, the city's annual Salon du Livre book fair aspires to stand at the crossroads of the French language and the Lebanese society. Over the course of its nine-day program the fair will stage over 100 discussions, more than 200 book-signing sessions and award six writing prizes. For the third year now, several Arabic-speaking Lebanese editors will be present at SDL, through works originally written in French.The French Institute of the Middle East (IFPO) and the French Institute (IF) will stage a translation workshop, drawing on the talent of young Lebanese, Egyptian, Tunisian, Algerian and Moroccan translators from Human and Social Sciences (SHS)."Young Lebanese Critics," another youth-oriented event held in collaboration with the French language department of the FI will see 200,000-odd public and private school students introduced to numerous writers attending the fair.One of the five most-read French authors of all time, and the most-read writer of francophone police procedurals in 2014, novelist Michel Bussi has authored such titles as "Code Lupin, Omaha Crimes," which won the Prix Sang d'encre, and "Black Water Lilies," winner of the Michel-Lebrun Polar Prize, the Guztave Flubert Grand Prize, among others.
