Maison de l'Ecriture
The Montricher project
The Maison de l’Ecriture, in Montricher, will be entirely dedicated to literature. Designed as a small city, its different buildings form an unusual ensemble : residences for writers, library, auditorium, exhibition space, dining room, lounge and the offices of the Foundation, intended for the multiple activities of the Jan Michalski Foundation.
A space for reading and working, open to everyone, the objective of the library is to reflect, through its collections, the fields of literary creation and knowledge in both its physical and electronic media.
Its collections are intended to be multicultural, multilingual and with the broadest geographical coverage. Find out more
Opening hours :
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 2-6 pm
