JUNE CLUB DE LECTURE - LE PETIT PRINCE BY ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPÉRY

  • La Madeleine at the Arboretum 9828 Great Hills Trail Suite 650 Austin, TX 78759 (map)

AFA Club de Lecture meets the fourth Saturday of each month at 2:00pm at the Arboretum location of La Madeleine French Café. It is recommended that participants have at least an intermediate level of French proficiency to join book discussion.  All members are welcome to attend and listen. Book Club members supply their own books. Club de Lecture is open to AFA members whose names appear on the current member list.

On June 23rd AFA's Club de Lecture will meet to discuss the novel Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Moral allegory and spiritual autobiography, The Little Prince is the most translated book in the French language. With a timeless charm it tells the story of a little boy who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the vagaries of adult behaviour through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal odyssey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures.
Become an AFA member and join us for Club de Lecture on June 23 at 2:00pm to discuss this acclaimed work.
