Convention - Paris Fan Festival 2024: Novels make their debutĀ 

By Mulder, 25 march 2024

This year, the Paris Fan Festival 2024 is putting the spotlight on the novel, inviting Young Adult and Romantasy genres into its fold to the delight of book aficionados.

The Paris Fan Festival, known as a melting pot for all forms of creativity linked to the imaginary and Pop Culture, takes a new step forward by welcoming the literary world. On April 27 and 28, Hall 6 of the Parc des Expositions at Porte de Versailles will be transformed into an exceptional meeting place for the most popular French authors of the moment and their fans. Signings, conferences and discussions around the works will mark these two days of intense exchanges. This initiative underscores the festival's determination to become the must-attend event for lovers of the imaginary, by broadening its spectrum to include literature - a first in France that promises to leave a lasting impression.

The Paris Fan Festival 2024 is a real springboard for a new generation of writers, who, thanks to online publishing platforms and increased visibility on social networks, are profoundly renewing the French literary landscape. Authors such as Margot Dessenne, Alric & Jennifer Twice, Chris Vuklisevic, Laetitia Lajoinie, and Ielenna will be on hand to share their experiences and inspirations, and to connect with their audiences.

The choice of the Young Adult and Romantasy genres is not insignificant. These universes, which draw as much on classic mythologies as on entirely new creations, speak to a very wide audience, touching both teenagers and adults in search of escapism. By giving pride of place to these genres, the festival confirms its ambition to become the place where the imaginary is celebrated in all its forms.

In addition to signing sessions and conferences, the Paris Fan Festival 2024 promises many surprises and new encounters. The organizers wanted to offer an unprecedented platform of visibility to authors who, thanks to their talent and originality, are pushing back the frontiers of contemporary literature. The event is also an opportunity to preview forthcoming works, and to discuss the creative processes that drive these talented authors.

The inclusion of novels in the Paris Fan Festival represents a major step forward in the evolution of this now flagship event in the French cultural landscape. It's an invitation to explore new literary horizons, to meet those who are shaping the imagination of tomorrow, and to take part in a moment of exchange and sharing around a common passion for literature and Pop Culture.
