Join AF DuPage for an interview with Scott Dominic Carpenter about his hilarious new memoir, French Like Moi: A Midwesterner in Paris.
Conducted in English.
For AF DuPage and AF du North Shore members only.
Please RSVP at the link below by January 25 to receive the Zoom link.
AF DuPage continues a new concept – the mini-Zoom session – a 20 minute focused presentation on a French-themed subject.
Most sessions will take place on Thursday afternoons promptly at 12:30 pm, a perfect midday break to add some French culture into your schedule.
The topics and presenters will vary. Most will be conducted in English, but we may add some French language mini-Zooms into the mix. Zoom links are reserved for AF DuPage members and will be sent out the day before the session. Visit our Membership page to join or renew your membership.
