First of all, thanks to everybody who made it to our first Meetup. We had a good discussion about Muriel Barbery's The Elegance of the Hedgehog, with opinion divided but the majority of people having found it a stimulating read.
So, now it's time to decide on our next read. September's meeting will be on Wednesday 15th, at 8pm. The venue is still to be agreed - if you have any suggestions, please let me know either by emailing me or athttp://www.meetup.com/anglophonebookclub/ideas/
Of the books that were proposed at our last Meetup, three are widely available in both French and English:
- Vladimir Nabokov: Lolita
- Azar Nafisi: Reading Lolita in Tehran
- Jonathan Littell: The Kindly Ones
(a couple more titles were suggested that I'm holding back for future meetings)
If you visit the Paris Anglophone Book Club page (http://www.meetup.com/anglophonebookclub
) and visit the 'More' tab and then 'Polls', you can vote for your preferred book.
Looking forward to seeing you in September,
