FRENCH LITERARY ENTHUSIASTS

THE FRENCH INSTRUCTIONAL BOOK CLUB OF L’UNION FRANÇAISE

FOR SPRING 2021

La Femme au Travail – Women at Work

This book club semester, we are reading four works, two contemporary and written by women, two by men about women working during times past. We are going to examine what these authors understand about women working (and what they perhaps do not understand). This discussion will also allow us to consider how women’s experience in the workplace may have changed recently in France, and how, as the French say plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. This class is open to upper intermediate and advanced students of French.

This is an instructional book club. Note that this series is in French and requires at least an intermediate French ability for participation. Students may sign up for individual books, or they may sign up for the whole semester at a discounted price.

All meetings take place on Saturdays at noon via Zoom.

Tuition is $120 for the entire semester.

Modules for an individual book are priced at $30.
