[close] 2013 was the year for reading—or re-reading—Marcel Proust's À la recherche du temps perdu or In Search of Lost Time for many of us.

The reading schedule can be found here, and can easily be amended for subsequent year-long reads; see the thread here for the translations and editions we will be using.

[close] Vendôme Circle's mission is to celebrate France's unique contribution to literary and artistic creation. This book club is a place where members can explore and (re)discover classic French literature ranging from Rabelais and Madame de Lafayette to Françoise Sagan and Patrick Modiano, not to mention such authors as Hugo, Dumas, Zola or Colette. We may also indulge in an occasional book by a non-French author who lived and wrote in France. Tender is the Night anyone?
