Join us for a read-along book club of L'Élégance du hérisson by Muriel Barbery. In December, we invite you to read the introduction (titled Marx (préambule)) through chapter 2:De guerres et de colonies of the Camélias section. If you have the Gallimard folio edition, this will be pages 1 - 48. Then, come ready to discuss online on the 21st at 5:30PM.

Members can listen to the audio on Culturethèque here. Questions about Culturethèque? Email your librarian librarian@frenchlibrary.org! This book club is for those who regularly read en français and for those who are reading a novel for the first time! This group will meet every month during our closing. Between each meeting, participants will read a few chapters from the chosen book.
