Summer Book Club Discussion: “I’ll Never Be French (No Matter What I Do): Living in a Small Village in Brittany”

July 27 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Meet with other Francophiles and enjoy lively discussion in-person to explore different themes from the book. Excerpt from the book to start the conversation: 

Getting to France:
“We book our flight on Air France. All I can think of is a joke I recently heard. ‘In Heaven, the French are the cooks, Italians are the lovers, English are the police, Swiss are the managers, and Germans are the engineers. In Hell, the English are the cooks, Swiss are the lovers, Italians are the engineers, Germans are the police, and the French are the managers.’”….”Everything about this is class. Joie de vivre, savoir-faire, je ne sais quoi. The movies, the nibbles and snacks, the pampering. If this is France, this is going to be all right, I think—until we get to the baggage claim, which brings me back to the joke.”….”The French love gadgets and gadgetry (think guillotine), and everything that can be is automated, everything except labor.”
