About this event

Saturday 8th January, 10:30am-12pm :

Join us on the 8th of January to talk about “Les enfants sont rois” written by Delphine de Vigan. The book takes us back to the heart of the 2000s until 2031, mixing thriller and dystopia, the author questions the excesses of our society of consumption and appearance.

Saturday 5th February, 10:30am-12pm :

Come and discover "La Marre au diable" written by George Sand. This country novel depicts the joys of love, childhood and working the land. Germain, Marie and the little Pierre camp overnight near a pond on their way to a brand-new life. It is an enchanted place which brings them irresistibly closer to each other. In the morning, they take the road again, but the magic of the night does not disappear.

Saturday 5th March, 10:30am-12pm :

For the « Semaine de la Francophonie » , we chose “Le poids des secrets, Tsubaki” by Francophone Canadian author, Aki Shimazaki. She looks back to the painful events of the 1945 atomic bomb explosions. Exploring the connection between family and collective dramas, the author presents characters eager to understand their ancestor’s past.

Saturday 2nd April, 10:30am-12pm :

In a besieged city surrounded by bombs, gathered under one roof, the Professor, his assistant and Marina have only one fuel they can use to fight the cold: books ... “Les Combustibles” by Amélie Nothomb poses this terrible question: which book is worth sacrificing a moment of physical warmth?
