All weekend there will be an exhibition displaying original works of art by French and English authors, inspired by the books being presented at this year's festival.  Each piece of art is for sale, as are postcards of all of the images.  

Festilitt is an anglo-French literary festival that takes place in the hilltop village of Parisot, in the Tarn & Garonne.  It attracts a fantastic calibre of well-known and debut authors and all events are entirely free of charge. We're busy working on our 2020 programme but in the meantime, check out the highlights of our 2019 festival in the video at the bottom of this page and our response to the Covid-19 restrictions, LockdownLit.
