GOAL OF THE GROUP
The group Francophone Literature will offer a monthly suggestion of works of literature from North Africa, West Africa, the Caribbean, the Indian Ocean, Québec, Louisiana and Acadia. The goal is to provide exposure for both works in French, as well as works in translation. In the days to come, I will "review" a couple of books, and I invite you to do the same. The prolific production of literature in French makes keeping up with it difficult, so I encourage you to share input regarding books that you recently have discovered (or re-discovered)!
A READING GROUP
In addition, I hope to organize a reading group in a charming part of New York City once every few months so that we may discuss a work both for its aesthetic qualities, as well as look at the novel or poem in a socio-political context. In the next few weeks, I will offer a suggestion of a novel, as well as information regarding where you may obtain it. It is not always easy to find these books!
Please send events that involve writers and playwrights and I will post them in an event section.
