Club de lecture française - Le chapeau de Mitterand, 8th January, 8pm
Join us for our next French language book club event at Night Owl Books on Monday, 8th January, at 8pm.
We'll be meeting in a small group to discuss contemporary French novel Le chapeau de Mitterand by Antoine Laurain - en français!
Purchase a copy of the book for a free spot at the book club (while spaces last!), plus a cup of freshly brewed tea or coffee to enjoy as we meet and chat about the book in French.
Select 'local collection' to pick up your copy from Night Owl. Alternatively please select a Royal Mail option, and I will ship a copy to you.
Quelques informations sur le livre:
Daniel Mercier dîne seul dans une fameuse brasserie parisienne quand - il n'en croit pas ses yeux - un illustre convive s'installe à la table voisine : François Mitterrand. Son repas achevé, le Président oublie son chapeau, que Daniel décide de s'approprier en souvenir. Tel un talisman, le feutre noir ne tarde pas à transformer sa vie. Daniel aurait-il percé le mystère du pouvoir suprême ? Hélas, il perd à son tour le précieux couvre-chef qui poursuit de tête en tête sa promenade savoureuse, bouleversant le destin de personnages pittoresques et brossant, sous la forme d'une fable, un tableau de la France des années quatre-vingt.
Softcover, 192 pages, published 2013.
- What level of French is the book suitable for?
I'd recommend the book for anyone with around A-Level experience of the French language. We'll try to stick to speaking in French throughout the book club where possible, but the aim of the group is to provide a supportive space in which to enjoy reading and practising speaking in French - and the question 'comment dit-on en français...' is very much welcome!
- Where will we be meeting?
The event will be held at Night Owl Books, 1 Bridge Street, East Linton, EH40 3AG.
- We'd like to attend as a couple and share a copy of the book - is that possible?
Of course! Please let me know by writing a note when adding the book to your cart, and you can pick up one copy of the book from Night Owl and receive a credit of £10 to spend on another book of your choice.
A note on Covid precautions: if you can, please take a lateral before attending as a courtesy to other attendees, and if you feel unwell on the day, please err on the side of caution.
