Saturday Reading Group

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

Exceptionally, the session will not be held at the library. Participants will meet in front of the library and leave at 3 pm sharp to walk to “La Cour” (23 rue de la Roë). The number of participants is limited to 6 so sign up is mandatory by Thursday 27 May. To sign up, send an email to the group coordinator at

The May read for the group is Among Schoolchildren by Tracy Kidder. Tracy Kidder–the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Soul of a New Machine and the extraordinary national bestseller House–spent nine months in Mrs. Zajac’s fifth-grade classroom in the depressed “Flats” of Holyoke, Massachusetts. For an entire year he lived among twenty schoolchildren and their indomitable, compassionate teacher–sharings their joys, their catastrophes, and their small but essential triumphs. As a result, he has written a revealing, remarkably poignant account of education in America…and his most memorable, emotionally charged, and important book to date.

Meetings are once a month on Saturday afternoons starting at 3 pm. Open to all library members. To sign up please contact the group coordinator at
