Tous les mois, nous vous invitons à découvrir l’œuvre d’un de nos écrivains préférés. Ce mois-ci, nous avons étudié la vie de Jacques Prévert (1900 – 1977) lors de notre Bouillon de lectures.

Vous avez peut-être lu ou écouté Barbara ou Les feuilles mortes, ou même regardé Le roi et l’oiseau ou Les enfants du paradis, mais connaissez-vous le travail intégral de ce poète, auteur, activiste et scénariste ? Retrouvez vos coups de cœur dans nos rayons…
