15th International Salon of Island Books “L’île de l’île”

salon+ouessant+visuel+The 15th edition of the International Salon of Island Books [Salon international du livre insulaire] will take place August 16-20, 2013, at Ile d’Ouessant, France. This year, the exhibition is organized under the theme “L’île de l’île” [The Island of the Island]. Last year, it was dedicated to the Caribbean, but the region’s writers are always present at the congress.

Description: As a paradigm, L’île de l’île [The Island of the Island] is the theme for this 15th edition. For islanders or geographers, this evokes the second islands or double insularity. Every island may have an island—not necessarily as part of an archipelago. [. . .] The island of the island is also a poetic image, an allegory. For all of us, the island of the island is reflected… through the imagination, through our childhood readings… There are islands underwater or in the heavens; they contain mysteries and characters that are not found anywhere else.
