It is a highly coveted literary prize and is often synonymous with success in bookstores. Three weeks after the Goncourt, the Goncourt for high school students will be awarded on Thursday with the announcement of the winner which will take place at the start of the afternoon from the salons of the Rennes City Hall.
Four authors, including two women, are in the running for the prize: Pascale Robert-Diard, author of The little liar published by L’iconoclaste, Nathan Devers for The artificial links (Albin Michel), Sarah Jollien-Fardel pour His favorite (Sabine Wespieser editions) and Sabyl Ghoussoub for Beirut-sur-Seinepublished by Stock.
Encourage a taste for reading in high school students
The regional deliberations of the Prix Goncourt des Lycéens, created and organized by Fnac and the Ministry of National Education, took place this year in six cities (Lyon, Metz, Nantes, Nîmes, Paris and Rennes). Goncourt’s little brother, the Goncourt for high school students allows some 2,000 high school students each year to discover contemporary literature and to arouse in students a taste for reading.
It was awarded last year to Clara Dupont-Monod for S’adapter (Editions Stock), a novel about disability.
