Café Littéraire - Elle habitait à Sandwich

The Story: Therese, Franco-Lebanese, lives in Sandwich, Illinois. She decides one night to slam the door without returning back. Now that she is 37 years old, she questions her choices: leaving her home country and following her husband to the United States. Her exile, her husband’s career and the establishing of her own family kept her busy for ten years. Today, her nostalgia pushes the woman to question all those choices, for better or for worse.[...]

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

Stephen G.

"Alliance Française de Denver created a wonderful virtual environment where I spent my Summer vacation; visiting the winemaking area of Bouzy; celebrating Bastille Day; learning how to cook with flowers; touring historic châteaux and beautiful villages; all in the safety and comfort of my home. A real treat for any Francophone person; especially having a daily place for French chat to try out and maintain colloquial skills."

Sue T.

“Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this ‘old dog’ to learn new tricks, but we couldn’t go slower. It’s been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.”

Cristina G.

“A great place to learn and practice French while getting acquainted with French culture and interesting people. I definitely recommend AFD and their events. Je parle français! Et vous?”
