Our next Désir de Lire meeting will take place Sunday, May 19th, at the UNO Criss Library. The room has not yet been determined so we will meet in the center of the library. The group will read and discuss 2 essays by Montaigne : « De l’institution des enfants » (chapitre 25) and « Des Cannibales » (chapitre 30). You can read these on this website :https://en.calameo.com/books/0000701160735e7682dc5

Remember: the book club is for members only, and all members are very welcome!
Désir de Lire will not meet during the summer. Joyeux été ! Our monthly sessions will resume on Sunday, September 29th, when we will discuss « Traversée de la mangrove » by Maryse Condé.
As always, we thank Juliette Parnell for being our animatrice and we thank Our Bookstore which is owned by AFO members Vera and Mark Mercer and operated by Mark’s mother and AFO member, Agnes Clark.
