Albertine Book Club on Germinal by Émile Zola

Join us for a lively conversation on Germinal, a novel by Émile Zola, translated from the French by Roger Pearson (Penguin). Moderated by Sandrine Butteau, Director of Albertine, and Adam Hocker, Bookseller.

Considered by André Gide to be one of the ten greatest novels written in the French language, Émile Zola’s Germinal is a brutal depiction of the poverty and wretchedness of a mining community in northern France.
