La Table Française: mercredi, 10 décembre

ConversationAdvanced non-native speakers of French gather every second Wednesday of the month from 7:30 to 8:30 pm at Logos Books, 513 Second Street for lively discussions on various topics in French.

A ce moment de l’année, on a tendance à se perdre dans la folie des préparatifs pour les fêtes d’hiver qui approchent.

Cette année marque une commémoration de la Première Guerre Mondiale. L’année passée, plusieurs entre vous on assisté à une séance du film « Joyeux Noël » pour apprendre un peu sur un moment magique qui a eu lieu pendant cette guerre terrible. Voici un site où on peut trouver, aussi, des histoires touchantes qui nous rappellent un peu les sacrifices vécus par tant de gens au passé :

https://www.onf.ca/selection/selection-premiere-guerre-mondiale/

A notre prochain rendez-vous on va discuter de guerre et de paix: les moments de guerres passées qui vous semblent particulièrement troublants ou touchants, par rapport à la paix que nous, tous, vivons ici dans notre petite communauté si bien éloignée du conflit à l’heure actuelle. Comment faire la fête quand il y a tant de souffrance partout dans le monde? Est-ce qu’un individu peut s’engager pour inciter des changements? Venez tous avec vos idées, vos anecdotes, et votre esprit ouvert pour parler de ce sujet intéressant, si épineux, mercredi le 10 décembre à Logos Books.

Poet Paul Zarzyski Wows ‘Em at Logos

November 13, 2014

If you missed last night’s poetry reading by Paul Zarzyski,  you missed a heck of a lot of fun – and how often can one say that for a Tuesday night?  Pie-rotechnics by Paul and four different kinds of pie by Susan made the evening worthwhile for one and all.

But, don’t despair!  January 22nd will bring more “Z” poets, when  Stanley Zumbiel and Mary Zeppa read that Thursday at 7:30.  Put it on the calendar now, so you won’t forget!
