Le book club

Le Book Club meets on a Friday once a month between 6.00pm and 7.45pm. We are now back to meeting in person, at Alliance Française in West End.

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.

For members only.

Purchase the book below, book your spot and get reading!
