As summer comes to a close and the French return from vacation, the rentrée littéraire begins! For those of you who don't know, "rentrée littéraire" is the start of the literary season in France where a large number of books are released from the end of August to the beginning of November. Many literary prizes, such as Prix Goncourt and Prix Renaudot, are also awarded during this time, making it a crucial period in publishing in the hopes that one of their books will be considered. Beginning in mid-September, the literary prizes' juries begin to announce their shortlists, and the final results are decided by mid-November. The winning books will wear a label, declaring their win and making them much more likely to be bought just in time for the Christmas season! 

Keep an eye out for more literary news in the French media and, if you speak French, be sure to pick up some of these new titles. If you do not speak French, you can wait for the English translations of the books to be released within the year. Also, be sure to check out French titles at Albertine in New York City or the French corner at Book Soup in Los Angeles!
