Le club est ouvert à tous !
Practice your reading skills and comprehension with les Navigateurs de la Littérature. We talk about the story of the book, the things we liked or disliked about this book. Members are welcome to ask questions about the things they did not understand when they read the story first. Everyone selects their favorite extract, reads it out loud and we discuss this 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 Culturetheque)
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.
The book can be purchased on Amazon or Albertine.
This group usually meets the second Wednesday of every month.
