2022-23 American Library in Paris Book Group
Prize-Winning American and British Plays
Saturdays, 10h30-12h00 (Spaces Open)
Reading plays and talking about them afterwards is a worthwhile way to learn about characters and their dilemmas, the human condition in general, and problems in a particular society or culture. Using our imagination, we can picture what is happening on stage and appreciate a story that is well-told through dialogue.
In this group, we will read and discuss award-winning American or British plays, most of which are available online as PDF’s and/or which the instructor will send out. If time permits during the session, we will also read out-loud some memorable scenes.
Our preference is to meet in person at the Library, but we can accommodate several people if they wish to join our in-person meetings on Zoom. Please let us know ahead of time if this is your option.
