Les dix meilleures bandes dessinées en 2011 - Toujours plus en noblesse! | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Nouveautés à la pelle, incursion dans des univers futuristes torturés, dans des histoires de vie troublées, dans le milieu de la danse, du vin, des tensions géopolitiques, déconstruction des codes narratifs classiques...

Top Books of 2011 - TPL

Top Books of 2011 - TPL | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Instead of putting together a predictable list of our top literary picks for 2011, we decided we wanted to get a sense of the year’s best books from a Torontonian perspective. While we couldn’t actually poll every reader in the city, the hard-working folks at the Toronto Public Library were kind enough to provide us with a round-up of 2011’s hottest titles, according to their popularity among TPL users. Beside each title, we’ve also indicated where you’d be in line (as of Dec. 20) if you placed a hold on the title now.

Les actes de cette rencontre qui réunissait bibliothécaires, écrivains et éditeurs sont aujourd’hui mis à votre disposition par l’École des lettres en deux versions : papier et numérique.
