A Public Panel on the “Bookstagram” Phenomenon with Four Local Bookstagrammers

January 22 @ 19 h 30 min - 21 h 00 min

Please join us for a public panel on the “bookstagram” phenomenon. We will be hosting four Paris-based bookstagrammers for the occasion: moderator Anne-Pauline (@apireading) and panelists Clara (@thebookwormofnotredame), Jordan (@sparkyjordy), and Romie (@romiewedeservelove). Our panel will explore the ways in which digital reading communities are created and how they enrich the social and intellectual experience of individuals who belong to them. How can “bookstagram” help individuals discover new literature? How is taking part in “bookstagram” different from blogging or creating content on “booktube,” Facebook, or Twitter? How do “bookstagrammers” liaise with publishers and authors in order to bring fresh and authentic content to their readers and followers? What motivates someone to become a “bookstagrammer” or follow “bookstagram” accounts and personalities? In what ways can “bookstagrammers” advocate for causes about which they hope to raise awareness, such as mental health, underrepresented voices or stories, LGBTQ+ issues)?
Anne-Pauline– Best known as Api on social medias, I mostly read young adult books (especially dystopia and contemporary) in french and in english. My target audience is young readers 14 and up who are eager to discover books off the beaten track.

Jordan– Social networks are a way for me to get in touch with people who share the same urge to grow an experience new things. It can be through books, music or simple discussions. Books genres, representations, well-being or spirituality are the topics I like to discuss with the people of the internet (who often turn out to become good friends in real life). My credo ? There is a beauty in believing in our potential for good, we just have to open up and trust that things will be okay!

Romie– I’ve been on bookstagram for nearly four years and booktube for a year. I consider my different platforms as one safe space for not only myself, but also the people who follow me. I use this safe space to talk about mental health, something that’s very important to me, and diversity in books.
