That of an idea which germinated in the mind of who knows who. Perhaps it appeared by magic in a world full of mysteries or maybe it was lovingly prepared in a fantastic place. And now this idea has come to us, we have heard the call.
Since 2004, the world has chosen to celebrate storytelling in its own way, one theme per year, that is the basic idea. On this day, storytellers from all over the world come together to celebrate in their own way the beautiful stories and the books that contain them.
Moreover, the will is to go towards a new public, to make or rediscover the pleasures of reading. For the love of good things, to enchant our ears by public readings and organization of events such as storytelling tours. Lovers of books and reading, note this appointment on your diaries, we have not yet written the last lines of this story.
