During this visit, the two young authors will tell us about their novels, their tastes and their reading preferences.
We often talk about the writer, but what about the bookseller?
What is the role of the bookseller? What are the specificities of this profession and what are its difficulties? Why do Moroccans refuse to read, and therefore to buy books in bookshops? Is it really a dying profession? So many questions that 2M mag will try to answer with Amina MASNAOUI whose bookshop is located in Casablanca.
Also in this issue, a meeting with the Congolese comic book artist KHP, whose drawings and texts realistically depict the problems of Congolese society.
The show will also be an opportunity to discover a particular literary genre, the poetry “Haiku”, very short poems come from Japanese culture. Several “haikists” have chosen to settle in Morocco. Sameh Darwich is one of them. In an interview on the fringe of SIEL, we will discover the particularities of this poetry like no other.
