The Book Festival is Back
The Book Festival is back on the French Riviera from this Friday, June 2nd to Sunday, June 4th. More than 200 authors are expected, with Giuliano da Empoli as the headliner.
Sonia Mabrouk at the Launch
But this Friday at the launch of the event, it was another radiant face that made the photographers happy. That of Sonia Mabrouk. Come to present her book Reconquérir le sacré (éd. L’Observatoire), the journalist and radio host of Europe 1 was very smiling. Obviously, love suits her well. Indeed, let us recall that in recent weeks, Sonia Mabrouk has been talked about due to her new love relationship with singer Pascal Obispo. The rather unlikely couple has caused a stir. And even a Europe 1 colleague of the author did not fail to tease her on the subject. In a total jeans look, with sneakers on her feet, Sonia Mabrouk could not hide her happiness during the 27th edition of the Festival, installed in the Albert 1st Garden. Her broad smile says a lot about the effect of her relationship with the singer in her life, while she has recently separated from the starred chef.
Notable Guests at the Festival
Sonia Mabrouk was obviously not alone at this event which will bring together nearly 200 authors. Among them, well-known faces such as Roselyne Bachelot, author of 682 jours (éd. Plon), or Ségolène Royal, who recently published Refusez la cruauté du monde! (éd. Éditions du Rocher). The two political women posed smilingly on this sunny and 100% literary day. Philippe Besson, Romain Sardou, Franz-Olivier Giesbert, the artistic director of the Festival, Christian Estrosi, the mayor of Nice, and Giuliano da Empoli, the honorary president of the Festival, were also immortalized at the launch of the event.
