Book Festival at Trou d’Eau Douce

The Festival du Livre Trou d’Eau Douce is back for its third edition, taking place from October 13th to 15th on the public beach. This annual literary extravaganza has firmly established itself as a must-attend event on the global and Indian Ocean literature calendar. Last year, it played host to literary giants like Mohamed Mbougar, the 2021 Prix Goncourt winner, alongside renowned authors such as Ananda Devi, Priya Hein, Michèle Rakotoson, Yusuf Kadel, Shenaz Patel, and Amarnath Hosany, to name a few. This year, the spotlight shifts to India, but the festival continues to celebrate Mauritian literature. One of the highlights will be the opportunity to discover the masterpiece “Lal Pasina” by the late Abhimanyu Unnuth, a literary giant. The festival also marks the release of Marcel Cabon’s complete works, making these literary treasures accessible to the younger generation. Set against the picturesque backdrop of Trou-d’Eau-Douce’s public beach, this festival is a bridge between literature and the village, preserving and promoting the rich oral tradition while nurturing a love for books among the youth of this Eastern community.
