Reading with the AF – Lansing Club de Lecture

Members and friends who would like to meet to discuss French literature (in French) should get a copy of our latest book now. L’élégance du hérisson by French novelist and philosophy professor Muriel Barbery was member-recommended. 

The French version of this book is available at Thriftbooks.com for as little as $4.33 (used) and at Amazon.com from $8.45. The language and writing style are beautiful but erudite, which makes reading more challenging. One idea, as member Mary Winter suggests, is to download a copy to your e-reader so that you can bring up your French-English dictionary by touching the word on the screen. 

Have questions or need additional information about our Lansing group? Contact Mark Sullivan, Club de Lecture Coordinator at 517-484-7417 or info@aflansing.org . For meeting times and locations, check our events calendar.
