Le Book Club


Our book club meets on the second Friday of every month between 6.00pm and 7.45pm at the Alliance Française de Brisbane.

Group sizes vary from 8 to 15.
We normally assign roughly 100 pages of reading per session, depending on the difficulty of the book.
We discuss our opinions openly in a very friendly and informal atmosphere...tout en français!

Our authors are chosen from contemporary French writers.

New members are welcome - RSVP essential

   
Next meeting: Friday 09 Novembre 2018 - RSVP essential
