Au Bonheur des Ogres, Daniel Pennac

07/11/2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul

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: Au Bonheur des ogres, by Daniel Pennac 

Synopsis :

There is something curious, sketchy, and some might even say abnormal about the Malussène tribe. But viewed from afar, it is happiness that rules this joyfully chaotic family. Their mother is constantly carried away by love for the scattered fathers of her children. Life is never boring for Benjamin Malaussène, professional black sheep and eldest, responsible brother of the pack.

But when bombs start to explode everywhere he passes, he attracts suspicion from the police and his coworkers. It quickly becomes vital for the hero to uncover why, how and above all, who might hold something against him to this degree.

Au Bonheur des ogres can be purchased on Amazon or Albertine and at the AFMSP French corner book store.

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.
