The Albertine Book Club: Summer and Fall 2020

Dear friends,

Never as much than in these troubled times have our literary group conversations inspired us, entertained us, brought us closer together as a community. Thus, we have planned on continuing the Albertine Book Club meetings on Zoom this summer and fall, and we hope that you’ll be able to participate wherever you may be.

This new curriculum aims to take you on a journey around Francophonie and its diverse cultures by way of classic and contemporary French and Francophone literature. Escape your daily routine for a few hours each month with books and friends from all the corners of the United States! The Albertine Book Club offers a unique opportunity to meet and talk with other French and Francophone culture lovers.

Moderated by the staff of Albertine and the French Embassy’s Book Department, The Albertine Book Club is free and open to Albertine members. For more information on how to become an Albertine member, click here.
