In March 2009, “The Telegraph” wrote: “Charleroi: the most depressing city in Europe becomes more depressing by the day…” Since then, its artists built a response all together : #TheNewCharleroi. Ours, was to show that although the world has a really bad view of our city, we were able to create a truthful traditional Publishing Company with real sense of literature. And it is now become a reality since August 2014. A passionate author and a mini army of volunteers created LiLys Editions. We are committed to promoting Belgian authors, writing in French or English, in Belgium and abroad, in paper and digital format. Our authors are between 11 and 80 years old, and write novels directed to an audience of 9 to 101 in different genres such as young public, young adult, the life/Social chronicles and the Crime/thriller. Gradually, our catalog expands and brings together new talents, such as Sam.B.Sam, Brigitte Guilbau and Samuel Bury.
