You enjoy reading in French but may need a little extra motivation to continue to do it on your own through the summer:
Sign up for this series of workshops (this one if the 2nd of 3 workshops) and you will have the opportunity to discuss the work of various Francophone writers throughout the summer. Every 4 weeks, a new book, a new writer, a new discussion. Each book will be relatively short therefore remaining manageable in the midst of your summer activities. This recommended edition of Un été à l’Islette has about 120 pages.

Dans un grand souffle romanesque sur tonalités historiques de fin de XIXe siècle, l’auteure nous transporte dans le cadre enchanteur des bords paisibles de l’Indre le temps d’un été de création artistique, l’été 1892 qui verra naître La valse et La Petite Châtelaine de Camille Claudel, le Balzac de Rodin, et L’Après-midi d’un fauve de Debussy.
Ce premier roman de Géraldine Jeffroy dans lequel tout est image, son et parfum, se lit tout en douceur et en poésie, en se laissant transporter dans la sérénité des magnifiques paysages de Touraine.

Please read the book before you attend the discussion. We recommend an intermediate to advanced level of French for this class.
