Art and Culture

The 5th arrondissement is once again celebrating literature and books with Quartier du Livre, a literary festival for which the Hôtel des Grands Hommes is a partner.

There’s also a book-related photo exhibition called Portraits d’écrivains which is being presented at the same time very close to all our hotels!

Here’s all the info.
