“Brun va mourir d’une leucémie. Il laissera bientôt ses terres jurassiennes à son fils Mo. Mais avant de disparaître, pour échapper à la faillite et gommer son image de pollueur, il accepte de couvrir ses champs d’éoliennes. Dans Mohican, l’auteur brosse avec tendresse le portrait d’une paysannerie en plein questionnement. Au fil des pages que l’on dévore d’un trait, il soulève aussi avec émotions les thèmes de la transmission, de l’enracinement et des illusions de la modernité.” From Réussir 

Meet to discuss Mohican, by Eric Fottorino with our French teacher Martine in Bristol. Everyone with an interest in French literature is welcome:

Comments from our previous book clubs:

“This was the fourth time I took part in the experience of notre club de lecture.
I have loved it every time. it is a great opportunity, first to read a good book in French and then to spend some time discussing the book.
I must even say that our last club I even changed my original approach to the book. From initially finding it a bit too bizarre, to appreciate a depth that I had not noticed.
I am already looking forward to our next meeting” Paco R

“This is an excellent book club. I have been to all the meetings since Martine started it and have enjoyed them all. The books choices have been varied and the meetings are very well run by Martine who clearly does a lot of preparation. All this prompts lively discussions which have been interesting as they have prompted different reactions and views from the participants. It’s an excellent opportunity not only to practise your French but also to listen to French as there are usually several French nationals who attend. Highly recommended 😊” Rebecca C
