Book Club

Un secret

On March 15th, at 5pm, come to our Book Club! Each month, you will discover a new book from a French-speaking author and talk about it in French.

Un secret is an autobiographical novel awarded by Le Prix Goncourt des Lycéens and Le Prix des lectrices de Elle.

This autobiographical novel tells the story of young Philippe’s childhood in post-war Paris. The sickly only child of glamorous, athletic parents, the boy worries that his own inadequate body is the source of his father’s unspoken disappointment. He senses a shadow hanging over his family. His parents never speak of the past and have altered their surname to hide their Jewish identity.
