The jury of the "High School Students' Favourite Choice," comprised of Year 11 pupils from the Lycée Albert Ier, Monaco's Vocational and Catering School (Lycée Technique et Hôtelier de Monaco) and the Lycée FANB, met on Thursday at the Documentation and Information Centre (CDI) of Monaco's Vocational and Catering School to draw up a shortlist of works selected for the 2019 "High School Students' Favourite Choice."
They chose the following:
David Diop Frère d’âme (Soul Brother)* Editions du Seuil
Sarah Magnine L’atelier (The Workshop) Editions Mercure de France
Hector Mathis K.O. Editions Roman Buchet Chastel
Aurélie Razimbaud Un été de pierres chaudes (A Summer of Warm Stones) Editions Albin Michel
Laurent Seyer Les poteaux étaient carrés (The Posts were Square) Editions Finitude
The "Favourite Choice" prize was created in 2007 as part of the Prince Pierre of Monaco Foundation's Literary Awards. It will be presented at the Foundation's Awards Announcement Ceremony on Tuesday 15 October 2019, at the Salle Garnier.
The next highlight for the students will be a meeting with the authors of the selected books on Wednesday 5 June in the new premises of the Lycée FANB.
