La Nuit de la Lecture / Reading Night - A Reading Afternoon
Sessions: 7pm to 10pm
Venue: Alliance Française de Kuala Lumpur
Come and join us for an entire afternoon dedicated to the joy of reading! Whether you read in French, Malay, Mandarin, Tamil, Arabic or even English and/or you would like to hear beautiful texts in any of these languages, do come!
La Nuit de la Lecture/Reading Night has started in 2018 in France and promotes books and reading in any language, not just French. This will be the first edition in Malaysia, and we hope it will continue in the future!
The event will take the form of an open-mic. Members of the audience as well as Malaysian and foreign authors will be reading excerpts of their own works or share texts that they like, in any language they wish to!
Kindly RSVP your seat and session below. For the open-mic session, please indicate the book of your choice in the comment section.
Please note that, if you wish to read more than one text, you may be allotted only one slot. Texts will be reviewed before we make the final list
