Discussion in French of 6 short short stories by Colette at Village Coffee








Join us this Thursday, August 15 for a discussion of 6 short short stories by Colette. Our reading amounts to about 16 pages (in French or in English). The titles of the stories are LA FEMME CACHE'E (=The Hidden Woman), L'AUBE (=Dawn), UN SOIR (=One Evening), LA MAIN (=The Hand), L'IMPASSE (=a Dead End), LE RENARD (=the Fox).

*     *     *

Though it is not forbidden to speak English, the default language for our discussion will be French. Later this month, there will be another meetup -- not sponsored by the French Language meetup group -- where the same 6 stories will be discussed, this time in English only. 

Socializing starts at 6:15p and we'll start discussing the texts shortly after 7.

*     *     *


Two ways to access the material:

1. The original French text is available for free online at

2. I've scanned the pages of an English translation and uploaded them to this site. Simply go the home page of the French group at Then click on the MORE button on top of the page (tool bar) and select FILES. You can now read the 6 short stories off your computer or you can print out the files. (It'll be 11 sheets if you want a printout.

Please come with a digital version or a printed version of all stories as that will facilitate our group discussion.

For more info, contact Guy Henoumont anytime at[masked] or at [masked] .
