    In sailing, the Grand Largue position means that the wind comes from three quarters of the boat. It is a point of sail which goes in front of the waves, and in which the manoeuvre is perilous.
    This is what we are looking for today in the bookshop: to go towards the encounter, the novelty, and above all, to take risks.
    By innovating. By putting forward small authors whose immense talents we know. By seeking to create and make this place a place for sharing, passions and exchanges.

    For the record, the press, established since 1954 in Saint-Martin, benefited from the addition of a bookshop in 1964, on the initiative of Mr. Béguéry. Today, the shop offers more than 13,000 titles with a very wide selection of books. In 2011, it was included in the top 400 bookstores in France, and now ranks 370 out of 3200 independent bookstores in France. After having had 9 different managers, the bookshop was taken over in April 2019 by Guillaume Laville, a native of the Rennes region and a loyal customer for 30 years of this true institution.
