2022-23 American Library in Paris Book Group

The American Library in Paris Book Award

Wednesdays, 17h30–19h00 (Spaces Open)

This group will look to past winners of the American Library in Paris Book Award. Exploring the perennially relevant relationship between the United States and France, the books will span many genres: fiction, historical fiction, and non-fiction, for instance. All books continuto provoke enduring interest, critical analysis and discussion. Questions posed during the group will include: How, if at all, has the book changed your impressions or notions about the subject?  What is the most surprising or revealing take away for you after reading? How has this book deepened your view of the ongoing relationship between France and the United States?
