What we're about

If you love reading, live in Paris, but don't feel up to discussing the finer points of Proust in French, welcome to an English-speaking book club.

We'll meet once a month to discuss the nominated book and our recent reads. The chosen books might be by a classic French author, or might feature France or Paris heavily within the book, or might be just any other book, proposed and chosen by the group members...

You can choose whether to read them in either English or French: the discussion will always be in English.

Members are welcome to nominate each month's book. The first hour of each meeting will be spent discussing that month's read, and the final half hour is open to discussion of any other books we've read that month, whether you love them or loathe them!

December Meetup - Olga by Bernhard Schlink

Online event

From the writer of "The Reader" ... Olga is an orphan raised by her grandmother in a Prussian village around the turn of the 20th century. Smart and precocious, she fights against the prejudices of the time to find her place in a world that sees her as second-best. ************************************** This meetup will probably be virtual... but let's be positive :)
