Tous les mois, nous vous invitons à découvrir l’œuvre d’un de nos écrivains préférés. Ce mois-ci, nous avons étudié la vie de Jacques Prévert (1900 – 1977) lors de notre Bouillon de lectures.

Vous avez peut-être lu ou écouté Barbara ou Les feuilles mortes, ou même regardé Le roi et l’oiseau ou Les enfants du paradis, mais connaissez-vous le travail intégral de ce poète, auteur, activiste et scénariste ? Retrouvez vos coups de cœur dans nos rayons…

Christianne Beasley

Head Librarian

A native Mainer, Christianne has worked in libraries all her life and came to the Center after three years of managing the library at the Alliance Française in Washington DC. She has a B.A. in French Studies from Smith College, a MLIS from Simmons College, and loves children's literature, BDs, and cookbooks. When she is not at the library, you can find her traveling, baking, and - quelle surprise! - reading new books.
