What is Lectures Faciles ?
We are a Beginner’s French Book Club that reads and discusses French literature in a relaxed environment. Lectures Faciles welcomes new and returning participants…even in the middle of a story! No preparation is necessary; for each meeting, we take turns reading the text aloud one page at a time, which we then follow with discussion. The discussion will be in a mix of French and English, with each member using French as much as they are comfortable.
Everyone is welcome to join! Membership at AFMSP isn’t required, but we encourage and appreciate your support.
Attending the book club is free! Most books are available online through Culturethèque. You may also purchase them in our office at our French Corner bookstore. Sometimes the stories are available on the internet, or you might be able to borrow them from a library.
Lecture Faciles’s current selection
We are currently reading Le Petit Nicolas de Sempé et Goscinny. This version of Le Petit Nicolas is available online here at no cost.
Please note that as of February 2019, this group meets at AFMSP’s new location in the Joly Family Center for International Understanding. The address is 227 Colfax Avenue North, Minneapolis, MN, 55405.
