On the 5th of April, Collège Champittet had the pleasure of welcoming Christine Pompéï, a French author living in Switzerland who writes children’s books. Her biggest success, the series « Les Enquêtes de Maélys », follows the various adventures in Switzerland of two children. Since the first book came out in 2013, the series has made the little ones discover different places on the Swiss territory: a city (like Vevey, for example), a region (Saillon, in Valais), or even a monument (the Chillon castle). Christine Pompéï presented her work with enthusiasm, and the many children present (around 50) were excited to answer the quiz she had organised. The author later read the first chapter of her upcoming book in exclusivity, and held an autograph session.
