Why "Au Bonheur des Gens"?
Au Bonheur des Gens will be a welcoming, warm place where culture and literature are combined with transmission and living together. A bookstore which nurtures connection between generations, a place to nourish both your mind and your taste buds. 

Who am I ?

A businesswoman with experience spanning trade, communication and art in France, England and Switzerland, I plan to use my experience and skills to now manage my own business. I am passionate about literature, proactive and creative and since settling in the Gard, in South of France, I want to create a place for the community. Ever the pragmatist, upon embarking on this project I underwent training in bookstore management and created a network with competent people in the trade. If the foundations are solid, the house is solid and I am deeply convinced that culture, interaction and proximity to the people around us are essential.


The project in detail

The bookstore will have a varied offer of more than 4000 works, beautiful stationary, cards, games and creative hobby supplies. The spacious layout will give airy aisles, the perfect place for regular events and workshops for young and old alike.

The adjoining tea room and juice bar will have a warm and cozy interior. Quality local products from artisan pastries to specialized teas and coffees (including a certified local tea producer), and local organic producer to do our healthy fresh juices/smoothies, will be on offer for both eat-in or take away. 

Counterparts and the role of contributors

Each contribution will be rewarded with a gift and in keeping with the essence of local community, we want to honour all contributors with having their names registered on our reception desk.

The project's progress
Today, the location is in the city center of Alès.

“Au Bonheur des Gens” is supported by BookConseil, which has created and supported more than 70 bookstores in France. Grants are advancing with the Occitanie Book and reading region organisation.
