Our new library pick of the month!
"Richard Abernethie died suddenly at home from a heart attack. That's what the newspapers wrote. All the relatives rushed to the funeral and
everything would have happened very well if this crazy Cora had stupidly asked: "It was well murdered, is not it? This incongruous question,
of course, throws a cold into the family reunion.
Six or eight blows of the ax, the next day, on the skull of the talker, and a little arsenic stuffed into the cake of his lady companion, will justify the intervention of Hercule Poirot. His famous sense of deduction will prove that the innocent question of Cora was not so stupid...
A passionate thriller easy to read in French.
A sea monster, "a huge thing", having been reported by several ships around the world, an expedition is organized on the Abraham
Lincoln, American frigate, to purge the seas of this disturbing monster. On board are the Frenchman Pierre Aronnax, a professor at the Paris
Museum, and Conseil, his faithful servant. The monster turns out to be a fabulous submarine, the Nautilus, designed and commanded by a
strange character, Captain Nemo, who seems fiercely hostile to all humanity!
A French classic.
At first, it was because of her funny name that Julie became interested in her new neighbor. But soon, there was everything else: his charm, his look, and everything he seems to hide ... Because she wants to know everything about Ric, Julie will take more and more delirious risks...

"What an awesome place to meet people who enjoy French Culture! I have never seen so many people from different countries get together at Alliance Française for the World Cup Final! Everyone was welcome and had a blast, thanks to the director Martin Lafitte!"
“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.”
“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?”
