You have been studying French for some time and are getting quite comfortable carrying on conversations on a large variety of topics but perhaps you are ready for something a bit more challenging to continue to improve your vocabulary and solidify your knowledge of French grammar – not to mention insight into the French culture and history? Reading a book has not yet been part of your toolbox as both the task itself – not understanding everything, having to look up too many words -- seems a bit daunting and the actual selection of a book, a discouraging process! But if someone chooses the book for you and holds your hand throughout the process by allowing you to tackle it in small digestible bites that you get to discuss once a week… you may be in for a pleasant and highly rewarding experience that will contribute to boost your confidence!
So if you are ready to move into the realm of unabridged literature, let the adventure begin!

You will be asked to read a little over 20 pages a week (at home) and on Friday you will meet with your classmates and instructor for an hour of discussion, clarifications, explanations, etc. -- in French of course!

Résumé de Khalil  
Source : Editions Julliard, 2018 
 
Vendredi 13 novembre 2015. L'air est encore doux pour un soir d'hiver. Tandis que les Bleus électrisent le Stade de France, aux terrasses des brasseries parisiennes on trinque aux retrouvailles et aux rencontres heureuses. Une ceinture d'explosifs autour de la taille, Khalil attend de passer à l'acte. Il fait partie du commando qui s'apprête à ensanglanter la capitale.
Qui est Khalil ? Comment en est-il arrivé là ?
Dans ce nouveau roman, Yasmina Khadra nous livre une approche inédite du terrorisme, d'un réalisme et d'une justesse époustouflants, une plongée vertigineuse dans l'esprit d'un kamikaze qu'il suit à la trace, jusque dans ses derniers retranchements, pour nous éveiller à notre époque suspendue entre la fragile lucidité de la conscience et l'insoutenable brutalité de la folie.
