For the 7th edition of the Nights of Reading on the theme of fear, fear and tremors invade the Verlaine media library, the Agora and the Arob@se, from January 20 to 22.

Nightmarish shows, readings in the dark, exhibitions of monsters and witches, creative workshops around villains and menacing silhouettes… You are invited to gather around a frighteningly attractive program, which deploys the full range of dread , from worry to horror. And if you also lend yourself to the game? Come dressed as monsters or creatures of the night!
