The authors shortlisted for the Discovery Grant 2022 were presented at the Monaco Multimedia Library at 3.30 p.m. on Tuesday 14 June. The event marked the start of a summer of reading on the Côte d’Azur. The aim is to share with as many people as possible the selection of works chosen each year by members of the Literary Council of the Prince Pierre Foundation.

From 15 June, participating media libraries are invited to help their readers discover the novels shortlisted for the Discovery Grant 2022 and share their thoughts about what they have read. The Discovery Grant recognises an author in the French language whose first novel has just been published. This year, the public will be able to discover the following novels:

- Sophie DELASSEIN: Le Dernier Testament de Maurice Finkelstein [The Last Testament of Maurice Finkelstein];

- Ève-Marie DES PLACES: La récitante [The Narrator];

- Thomas LOUIS: Les Chiens de faïence [The China Dogs];

- François NOUDELMANN: Les enfants de Cadillac [The Children of Cadillac];

- Stéphanie de SAINT MARC: Une vie de rêve [A Dream Life].

Readers will be able to meet the authors at 6.30 p.m. on Monday 10 October at the Monaco Multimedia Library. The winner will be announced during the Foundation awards ceremony on Tuesday 11 October at the Opera Garnier in Monaco.

The novels will be available at the following media libraries: Bibliothèque pour tous (Library for All) in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, Biot Community Media Library, the SIVOM media libraries in Villefranche sur mer, Cap d'Ail, La Turbie and St Jean Cap Ferrat, the André Verdet Media Library in Carros, the Marie Toesca Media Library in Gattières, the media libraries in Grasse, the Quatre-chemins (Four Paths) Media Library in Trinité, the Odyssée (Odyssey) Library in Menton and the Monaco Multimedia Library.
