Francophonie, Bilingualism & Ecriture
Presentation and Discussion With Claudine Fisher, Plus Coffee & Croissants - In English
The themes of the title will be interwoven to present an overview of Francophonie, bilingualism and the art of writing through the short stories of Out of Vogue/Loin de l'Air du Temps, by Claudine Fisher, retired Professor of French at PSU and former Honorary Consul of France, as well as honorary board member of the Alliance Française de Portland.
Excerpts from the book will serve as a springboard for the presentation and will lead to discussions on each subject with many questions &
interruptions (hopefully) from the audience.
Parents may leave their children in neighboring room for a movie projection monitored by AF staff.
Conference duration: approximately 40 minutes.
Stay after the lecture to mingle and meet fellow francophones and expats. Learn what the Alliance has to offer to the expat community.
