Only Lyon - Tourism and Conventions

Quais du Polar 2014

Quais du Polar

From the 4th to the 6th of April 2014, Lyon is painting the town black as it welcomes authors and personalities from the world of crime fiction.

At dawn, on this morning of April 4th, a cold, grey fog hovers above the city. Only the sound of a person's determined footsteps echo in the silence. The expression of excitement on his face is mingled with anxiety.

"What am I going to do?" he asks himself.
"Only three days and so many things to see and do! Should I meet top author James Ellroy at one of his conferences or watch a film noir selected by the guests? One thing's for sure – I won't miss the big investigation in Lyon and I definitely want to visit a museum with one of the authors!"

"If I have time, I could have a go at the dictée noire (a dictation exercise on the theme of crime comics). But I absolutely must take the kids to the children's area: they've always dreamed of being a detective and learning about their investigation methods. Oh, and there's another thing I'm definitely going to do: after this weekend of crime and violence, I'm going to enjoy a well-deserved meal at one of the restaurants serving a special 'crime fiction' menu!"

How about you? Where will your nose lead you at the   Quais du Polar  weekend festival?

To the museum? To the police school at Saint-Cyr au Mont d’Or? To the Institut Lumière cinema to watch a film (in its original language)? To the temporary book shop to choose your next thriller and get it signed by one of the 70 authors who have been invited from around the world? Or all across town to join the investigation?

This captivating festival for all ages is celebrating its first decade.
