Book Club

Réparer les vivants, Maylis de Kerangal



On June 21st, at 5pm, come to our Book Club at AFC downtown! Each month, you will discover a new book from a French-speaking author and talk about it in French.

A novel with 10 literary awards (France culture Télérama, Grand prix RTL-Lire...)

In the depths of a winter's night, the heart of Simon Limbeau is resting, readying itself for the day to come. In a few hours' time, just before six, his alarm will go off and he will venture into the freezing dawn, drive down to the beach, and go surfing with his friends. A trip he has made a hundred times and yet, today, the heart of Simon Limbeau will encounter a very different course.But for now, the black-box of his body is free to leap, swell, melt and sink, just as it has throughout the years of Simon's young life. 5.50 a.m.This is his heart. And here is its story.
