Join us for a read-along book club of L'Élégance du hérisson by Muriel Barbery. In January, we invite you to read from chapter 3 (le caniche comme totem) through chapter 8(Prophète des élites modernes). If you have the Gallimard folio edition, this will be pages 49 - 83. Then, come ready to discuss online on the 25th at 5:30PM.

Members can listen to the audio on Culturethèque here. Questions about Culturethèque? Email your librarian librarian@frenchculturalcenter.org! This book club is for those who regularly read en français and for those who are reading a novel for the first time! This group will meet every month during our closing. Between each meeting, participants will read a few chapters from the chosen book.
