Le club est ouvert à tous !

Practice your reading skills and comprehension with our intermediate French book club: Les Navigateurs de la Littérature. This group meets the second Wednesday of every month from 7pm – 8pm. Each meeting focuses on a different book, so both returning readers and newcomers are invited to attend. During meetings, we discuss the plot of the book, review what we did and did not like, and explore any questions that members may have. Everyone also selects a favorite excerpt to read aloud and to bring to the conversation. The discussion will be in French!

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.

This month’s selection is : Terre Ceinte de Mohamed Mbougar Sarr


In Kalep, Somalia, the Jihadist government executes two young people for having a love affair. Thus begins a story of persistence and courage against a regime of terror in a world of fear and violence. A resistance group forms and begins a clandestine newspaper with which they seek to oppose the brutal police state. The narrative plunges the reader into a myriad of perspectives; one watches the evolution and growth of the resisters, as well as the details of daily life from the eyes of civilians and jihadists alike. And woven throughout the novel is the correspondence between the two mothers of the victims murdered at the beginning of the novel.
