Sunday, 20 October
2 – 4 PM in V499 (499 Van Buren street, Monterey CA 93940), on the MIIS campus.
The Alliance Française has invited French author Isaline REMY for a lecture and book signing for her book “Les Garçailles” about Northern Brittany from the 1920s to the present day. You may read her biography here.
Remy will speak about the mass arrival of Britons to the Parisian region who, with their courage and baggage alone, were prepared to do anything to regain their country with pride and dignity. Remy’s book is a chronology of her ancestors, a poor Breton family of 7 (“Les Garçailles), from the 1920’s on.
This free event will be in French. Simultaneous interpretation into English will be available for those wishing interpretation (interpretation provided by students in the MIIS Translation and Interpretation program). Please come with your families!
There will be a reception following; please expect an email as we get closer to the date with more information.
