Book Club 30th November

This event is open to members and non-members Date and Time: Mon., November 30th at 2pm. Place: The book store Raconte Moi la Terre’s tearoom, 14 rue du Plat 69002 Lyon (near Place Bellecour) November’s selection will be Under the Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan. At the age of thirty-five, Fanny van de Grift Osbourne has left her philandering husband in San Francisco to set sail for Belgium – with her three children and nanny in tow – to study art. It is a chance for this adventurous woman to start over, to make a better life for all of them, and to pursue her own desires. Not long after her arrival, however, tragedy strikes, and Fanny and her children repair to a quiet artists’ colony in France where she can recuperate. Emerging from a deep sorrow, she meets a lively Scot, Robert Louis Stevenson, ten years her junior, who falls instantly in love with the earthy, independent, and opinionated “belle Americaine.”
