Lyon, Lyon, here I come!

Starting today, Lyon is hosting the Quais du Polar festival, celebrating crime fiction. Last year’s visitors’ numbers were 45 000 and this year, I am delighted to say, I will be amongst them.  You can see the full programme here (in French) and my summary of the event here.  But for now, I am looking forward to spending Easter with my family and with thousands of crime fiction fanatics like myself in one of the loveliest (and gastronomically most renowned) cities in France.  Life doesn’t get much better than this.

Happy Easter and Happy Passover for all who are celebrating this now.Image

  7. Oh, cracking. I love Lyon. It’s my second favourite French city- after Toulouse. Have a good un!

  8. How great! Lyon Crime festival is very high on my agenda of festivals-I-should-visit-one-day. I hope you have a great visit, and as for food, Lyon is quite the right place to be (if you’re not vegetarian). If you ever make it to Paris on a next visit, make sure to let me know!
