Les Rendez-vous du premier roman is a joint project between France and Quebec launched by the Festival du premier roman de Chambéry and managed by the
Union des écrivaines et des écrivains québécois (UNEQ). Thousands of book club members spread out over ten countries read, exchange ideas, and debate before choosing the novels that speak the most to them. The selected authors are then invited to the Metropolis Blue Festival in Montréal and to the Festival du premier roman de Chambéry for conversations, meetings, debates, shows, etc.
Book club members meet at the Moncton Public Library, every third Tuesday
night or so, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., to discuss the selected novels. After sharing their impressions and debating the quality of the writing, members vote for their favourites. The discussions will take place in French.
The program runs from September to February, when members place their official votes and choose their three favourite novels in each category.
