Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole associates with this program several independent bookstores from Montpellier which will be present during the evenings.

Literary meeting with Huriya (Morocco), Entre les pieds, Le Nouvel Attila editions.

“I was born into a lie one August night in this deaf and blind city.”
Born between two sexes in the 1970s, in Marrakech, Moulay Saïd grew up between a Berber grandmother who was both austere and angry and a French grandfather, a literate alcoholic and atheist, who vowed a fierce hatred.
An uncompromising picture of a society sclerotic by the weight of taboos and shame as much as obsessed by sex, Between the Legs is above all the story of a quest for freedom and truth.
