About this Event
Come and join the French Book Club to share your thoughts! ??

? The French Book Club is a friendly French reading group led by a member of the AF Manchester Culture and Communication team. It is open to all - you do not have to be enrolled in a class with us. All works and discussions are in French, so an intermediate level is required. It is a great way to practice your French while discovering works of literature in French.

Synopsis : Lorsque son frère aîné, surdoué scandaleux, a choisi de s'enfuir, Isabelle a appris l'absence et le manque. Aujourd'hui, l'exilé volontaire est de retour et il la réclame, ne lui offrant que des jours fragiles. Empêtrée dans ses frayeurs, guidée par un infatigable espoir, elle est enfin prête à cheminer aux côtés d'Arthur Rimbaud vers l'irréparable.

Unless otherwise indicated, all Alliance Française de Manchester cultural events are open and accessible to all. They are public events and under 18s remain under the responsibility of their parent/guardian at all times.
