Book Club : The Bonjour Effect
Join Bhavana on Zoom on Wednesday, February 23rd at 7:30pm (CST) for a discussion on The Bonjour Effect by Julie Barlow and Jean-Benoît Nadeau.
Freelance journalists Julie Barlow and Jean-Benoit Nadeau moved with their daughters to Paris for a year to write this book. As native Québécois, they were already fluent in French, and in fact had already lived in Paris some years earlier. Yet, one important lesson never seemed to sink in: how to communicate comfortably with the French, even when you speak their language. In The Bonjour Effect Jean-Benoît and Julie offer up all the lessons they learned and explain, in a book as fizzy as a bottle of the finest French champagne, the most important aspect of all: the French don’t communicate, they converse.
ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Jean-Benoit Nadeau and Julie Barlow are the award-winning authors of The Story of French, The Story of Spanish, and the bestselling Sixty Million Frenchmen Can’t Be Wrong. They live in Canada.
