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: La femme au carnet rouge, by Antoine Laurain

When bookseller Laurent finds a mauve handbag, presumably discarded by a thief since it contains neither purse nor phone, the personal possessions it still contains, not least a red notebook of quirky reflections, arouses his interest in the woman who owns it. Through a mixture of persistence, advice from his shrewd teenage daughter and sheer luck, he manages to discover her name, locate her address, even insinuate himself into her life. But will the real woman, perhaps tritely named Laure, live up to the imagined one? Will she be able to forgive an intrusion which has troubled some readers as obsessive to the point of seeming a little creepy?

The book can be purchased on Amazon or Albertine.
This group usually meets the second Wednesday of every month.
Free and open to all!
