Reijin Hachondo: “You shouldn’t stop young readers”


voluntary. Reigen Hachondo, president of CNL.



the point : Why did the National Book Center (CNL) decide to invest specifically in children’s literature?

Reijin Hachondo: The youth sector is thriving, innovative, creative. And very dynamic: children’s picture books (albums, documentaries) accounted for 55% of sales in 2021. This year, after the President of the Republic declared that reading is a great national issue, we feel more responsible for this composition. We are convinced that young readers should not be prevented, taking books off the shelves.

Youth will not be left empty-handed…

We have been very keen to give them tangible access to reading, through the books we co-publish with different houses: little dinosaur friend, At the leisure school, Dogmatics and indomitablespublished by Albert Rene, and bourgeois man, in Flammarion Youth. An audiobook will also be presented to diversify the practices. 100,000 euros of reading tests will be distributed to children in partnership with McDonald’s.

They will go to young people from all over the territory. Is this another commitment to CNL?

we are very happy. Partir en Livre represents 4000 projects spread across France. 60% of it takes place in very small towns or on the outskirts of large cities. We are organizing 50 free summer camp stays for authors, created for kids who can’t afford to leave, and 860 writers and illustrators will attend!§ EL
