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 then 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: L’attentat de Kahdra Yasmina (dispo sur Culturethèque)

Synopsis:

Dr. Amin Jaafari is an Arab-Israeli surgeon at a hospital in Tel Aviv. As an admired and respected member of his community, he has carved a space for himself and his wife, Sihem, at the crossroads of two troubled societies. Jaafari’s world is abruptly shattered when Sihem is killed in a suicide bombing. As evidence mounts that Sihem could have been responsible for the catastrophic bombing, Jaafari begins a tortured search for answers. Faced with the ultimate betrayal, he must find a way to reconcile his cherished memories of his wife with the growing realization that she may have had another life, one that was entirely removed from the comfortable, modern existence that they shared.

L’attentat can be purchased on Amazon or Albertine. It is also available on Culturethèque for Alliance Française members.
 
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.
