Charlotte by David Foenkinos

Le club est ouvert à tous !

Practice your reading skills and comprehension with our intermediate French book club: Les Navigateurs de la Littérature. Every month, we discuss our book of choice’s plot. We also review what we did and did not like about it. We welcome navigateurs to ask questions about the things they did not understand when they first read the story. Everyone selects their favorite excerpt, reads it aloud and we discuss the special passage. The discussion will be in French!

Returning readers and newcomers are all invited to attend and discuss. The group discusses a different book at each meeting.

This month’s selection is: Charlotte, by David Foenkinos (dispo sur Culturethèque)

Synopsis:
Charlotte Salomon is born into a family stricken by suicide and a country at war – but there is something exceptional about her. She has a gift, a talent for painting. And she has a great love, for a brilliant, eccentric musician.But just as she is coming in to her own as an artist, death is coming to control her country. The Nazis have come to power and, a Jew in Berlin, her life is narrowing – she is kept from her art, torn from her love and her family, chased from her country. And still she is not safe, not from the madness that has hunted her family, or the one gripping Europe . . .Charlotte is a heart-breaking true story – inspiring, unflinching, awful, hopeful – of a life filled with curiosity, animated by genius and cut short by hatred. A beautifully, lucidly told memorial, it has become an international sensation.
Purchase Charlotte on Amazon or Albertine or access it on Culturethèque if you are an Alliance Française member.
 
This group usually meets the second Wednesday of every month. Look for our flyer at the Alliance with upcoming dates and books.
 
 
This event is free and open to the public! You do not need to be an AF member to participate in our book clubs.
