Our French Book Group reads short novels in French by French authors and so far have had lively discussions in French on Un Secret, Oú on Va Papa, No et Moi and Oscar et la Dame Rose.
A second parallel book group starts in January 2020. Both groups will be reading the same books, but each will meet in a different home in N8. It is envisaged that the 2 groups would get together a couple of times a year to meet each other, and have a general discussion on the books we have read.
A reasonable knowledge of French to intermediate level is desirable. Members are strongly encouraged to speak in French, and not to worry about making mistakes or speaking in English where necessary. We will support and help each other in franglais where necessary, and gradually build up our confidence to express ourselves better in simple French.
The French books planned for the year starting in September 2019 include Petit Pays, En finir avec Eddy Bellegueule, and Meursault, contre-enquête.
The first Group meets in an upstairs flat in N8 on the last Thursday of every month (except August and December), 10.15 a.m. – 11.45 a.m. Similarly for the second Group, but in a house in N8, at 10.30 a.m to 12 p.m.
