"Tout Mulhouse Lit" 2013 : Space at the forefront
The book fair "Tout Mulhouse Lit", which was held from 8 to 16 November 2013, was dedicated this year to Space under the auspices of the CVA 2013 Presidency held by "Mulhouse Alsace Agglomération" (m2A). Some 30 writers specialists in the world of space attended this event, which has already attracted several hundred visitors at its venues in Mulhouse and in four of its neighbouring municipalities. It was noted that talks with a scientific angle produced a particularly strong interest.
