Three dates to discuss and explore the literature and the science fiction orbiting the Moon.

Ungovernable, surprising, frequently invisible, unexpected, lateral, oblique. Imaginative, unable to stick to the rules, sensitive to responsibility and ready to bear the load. Free and respectful of the freedom of others. They imagine worlds, but never on the basis of rules they do not understand. They are not hamsters on a wheel: the women on the Moon are a very different kettle of fish.
