Book Club & Meet the Author(s)
Each month, you are invited to read a book and then discuss during an in person meeting with our group animated by Amelie Chappaz.
Our program includes meetings with contemporary authors!
This is an excellent way for you to practice or maintain your French language outside the classroom. The book club is open to all.
Thanks to the Federation of the Alliances Françaises USA, we offer online interviews to meet contemporary authors. These events are open to all and free for members.
Check the schedule below and on our "Events" page. Follow us on social media and sign up for our newsletter to get all the updates!
From classics to contemporary literature
(re) discover classics of the Francophone literature to ultra contemporary authors. The selection of books is organized by our club coordinator in agreement with the members of the club.
We have the pleasure to welcome authors who share their work and passion with our community.
