Libertarian Book and Militant Publishing Festival (FLLEM)
To celebrate the sixty years of the Athénée Libertaire as well as the twenty years of the Librairie du Muguet, the FLLEM – or Libertarian Book and Militant Publishing Festival – will hold its first edition at the Athénée on the weekend of October 14 and 15, 2023.
This will be an opportunity to invite a dozen independent publishers and collectives to present their books, magazines or brochures. The entire weekend will be punctuated with meetings and debates on themes that are close to our hearts. For this first edition, it will be about childbirth, desertion, drunkenness, gentrification or even exploitation in associations.
The publishing houses and magazines that will be present: Premiers Matins de November, éditions Ici bas, éditions Burn Aout, Lux éditions, Niet éditions, éditions BPM, éditions Tendance Négative, éditions Entremonde, Le Seum, Contre attack, CQFD, Panthère premiere , Journal Rupture.
On the program: meetings, publisher stands, debates, surveying, collective podcast listening... Our festival is entirely voluntary, self-managed and operates without subsidies! No credit card at the bar, remember to bring cash!
