Le Book Club – The Elegance of the Hedgehog
In this monthly Book Club, open to all levels of French, we will read books about French culture and history, or written by Francophone authors. In an effort to be accessible to Francophiles of all levels, the books chosen will be written/translated in English. However, expect the discussion to be both in English and French, as a way for you to learn new vocabulary related to literature and to the French language and culture.
This month we are reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog (L’élégance du hérisson), a novel written by the French novelist and philosophy teacher Muriel Barbery.
The book follows events in the life of a concierge, Renée Michel, whose deliberately concealed intelligence is uncovered by an unstable but intellectually precocious girl named Paloma Josse.
This book club is led by Coucou’s intern, Cassidy, and meets on the first Thursday of each month, 5:00-6:30pm.
Please note that our Book Club will meet online via Zoom for the time being.
RSVP by emailing us at email@example.com and we will send you a link to join the meeting online.
Please note: our classes have limited capacity and often sell out fast, don't wait too long to book your spot!
