French Book Club

We’re starting a new book club here at the new Main Library at Goodwood with a twist: it’s en français! We’re partnering with a local French interest group called Francopportunités that is dedicated to promoting French language and culture in Baton Rouge. Join us next Thursday, March 20, at the Main Library at 7:00 p.m. as we kick off our new French club with a discussion of the classic Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Our unofficial slogan for the club is “Less Sartre, more fun!” Future dates and titles are: le-petit-prince
