Hautes-Alpes – A writing residency project for comics
The department of Hautes-Alpes is marked by a certain weakness in the network of book fairs and literary animations. The book festival of the Argentière-la-Bessée in August and the spring of the youth book of Veynes are in the department the only two highlights marking the literary landscape.
The association Littera 05 is responsible for the promotion and development of reading in Gap and in some relay libraries of the Departmental Lending Library. The association Rions de Soleil is also doing remarkable work in the same field on the Embrunais sector.
However, the offer in the literary field remains limited and it is the Departmental Library of Loan that carries out with the bridge libraries the most advanced outreach work in terms of reading development.
Also, the Drac and the department will propose in 2012 the creation of a writing residence to welcome a comic book author in the spring.
This project is under development.
