Knit and natter | 06/01/2018 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Knit and natter

Come along and bring your knitting,

Have a natter while you’re sitting,

Or learn to knit with wool provided,

Needles loaned and stitches guided.

Knitted garments are très chic,

So be in vogue and start this week.

 

Knit and natter is a free activity open to all members. No need to reserve, just come and enjoy yourself!

Talk by Curtis Young "When the Blues People Sang - Part 2"

The last talk in the Speaker Series will be “When the Blues People Sang America to France – African-American soldiers in France in World War 1” by Curtis Robert Young.

Young is a historian, consultant, writer and professor of literature at ESSEC Grande Ecole. His current work celebrates the role played by African-American soldiers in 1917 France. His talk will feature “Part 2 – After the Debarkation” as the conclusion of the fascinating saga which he began last October.

No reservations necessary. The Speaker Series has been made possible through a generous grant from the American Embassy.
