What’s happening

Saturday Reading Group | 27/04/2019 | 3:00 pm-4:30 pm

Saturday Reading Group

The Saturday Reading Group is for anyone who loves to read, socialize in English, and meet new people.

The April read for the group is “A Dry White Season” by Andre Brink. In South Africa, in 1976, Ben du Toit is a schoolteacher who has always considered himself a man of caring and justice, at least on the individual level. When his gardener’s son is brutally beaten up by the police at a demonstration by black school children, he gradually begins to realize his own society is built on a pillar of injustice and exploitation. The group will also be discussing the 1989 film based on the same title.

When and where: Meetings will be held in the library once a month on Saturday afternoons starting at 3 pm. Cost: FREE to all members of the library. To join: Please contact Anne Kaar at bookgroup@ellia.org


Walk and Talk | 30/04/2019 | 2:00 pm-6:00 pm

Walk and Talk

Time to get outside! Get on those hiking boots and take some time to revel in the great outdoors! The idea is to organise an easy walk once a month – approximately 10 km, 4 hours, in the afternoon – in order to discover or re-discover the beautiful hiking paths of the Maine-et-Loire. Come along with good walking shoes, protection against rain, cold or heat according to the season… a bottle of water and a little “en-cas” to keep you going! Maximum group is 20 so be sure to sign up!

Sign up by sending your name, email address and phone number (preferably cell phone)  to the group leader by clicking here. You will be sent full details for the upcoming walk.
