Hulking Germain Chazes, 45 years old, is the neighborhood idiot. He lives in a battered trailer parked at the rear of the garden of his mother's house. He spends his time between visits to the corner bistro and the local public park. There he meets Marguerite, a well-educated elderly lady who helps him to discover the world of books and of words, which he mistrusts and which frightens him immensely. His relationship with those around him and with himself will be turned on its head as a result of these new discoveries.

This is a simple, unpretentious story that will totally charm you and will leave you happy with its feel-good ending. All along the way you will share the joys and tribulations of these two characters. The book was selected for its unassuming style and plot line, and will, as such, reach a wide audience of Alliance Française members. The French is accessible and suitable for B1 and B2 language students.

Where: Alliance Française de Hartford Office, 75 Charter Oak Ave., Suite 1-202, (Corner of Wyllis Street), Hartford, CT

When: Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 2:00 P.M.

(Snow date: February 11, 2018). There will be instrumentals and fun sing-alongs. Joe is French Canadian and has been going up to Quebec to play for many years.
