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 http://www.ebooksgratuits.com/pdf/colette-femme.pdf

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 meetup.com/nolafrench. 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] .
