Lettres vivantes proposes to discover the book "Lignes de crêtes - Promenades littéraire en montagne" published by Editions noir sur blanc

The Swiss mountains have attracted an impressive number of writers from all over the world. This book explores the rich relationship between landscape and literature through twenty mountain walks throughout Switzerland. Each itinerary, enriched with geographical insights by Jonathan Bussard and Emmanuel Reynard, shows that the mountains remain a space conducive to the emergence of poetry.

Lignes de crêtes is a hiking guide, an anthology of writers' texts on the mountains and a collection of geomorphological elements on the landscape. It is illustrated by the mysterious and bewitching photographs of Olga Cafiero, who has followed in the footsteps of the authors. An exhibition with a selection of photographs will be held over two weekends. A reading is given on each opening day.
