Free admission, subject to availability.

Aulus is Zoé Cosson's first novel. It's also the name of a spa where she lives, observes and collects the habits and stories of the inhabitants. Her story is one of a fragile ecosystem, where man and nature coexist as best they can. Where an old mine is dangerously polluting the mountain. Where everything threatens to collapse, despite the millennia-old strength of the omnipresent rock. A current story, a metaphor for our times, in perpetual imbalance.


Zoé Cosson was born in 1995. She is an author and video artist. After obtaining a DNSEP from ESAD in Reims, she joined the master's program in literary creation at Le Havre. There, she developed the writing of her first novel, Aulus, published in 2021 in the Arbalète collection by Éditions Gallimard. She is the winner of the Simone del Duca Foundation Prize for Literary Creation, and the 2024 winner of the call for projects for a creative residency for emerging authors proposed by La Marelle and the Collectivité de Corse.
