An Evening with
January 17 6PM
John-Benoit NADEAU is the author of a number of books including The Bonjour Effect: The Secret Codes of French Conversation Revealed (2014), an exploration of the French art of conversation from the point of view of a North American. It will be enlightening for anyone who has ever traveled to France or will ever do so! Though Nadeau is from Quebec, his book is a fun look at cultural differences between North American and French mentalities based on his years living in Paris with his wife and co-author Julie Barlow. You can read more about the book here (New York Times article), you can also check out his Bilingual website. Enjoy an evening with a funny and engaging speaker. Thanks to the local AATF chapter. No charge and all are invited.
