The new books have arrived and we are expecting a significant donation of about 150 books, good titles and good authors.
100 Best Novels of the XX Century
We have got there, the books are on their new shelf in the library. Many thanks to Philippe Marchand who initiated and followed the project through, Art Fell and the AWG who have donated generously and other members of Foal. (list of the 100 in attachment) These books will be on loan soon, once we have done some covering.
Comédie du Livre 1st, 2nd and 3rd June
The authors invited this year are British
Foal has been consulted by the Mairie who asked us to come up with some ideas. We have suggested doing the Quiz again with invited authors on the teams ; a Round Table, again with invited authors, focussed on the 100 Best Novels which will give wide publicity to the project; and possibly some form of audio event where the public could listen to readings from poets and authors past and present drawn from the BBC archives. The people at the Mairie like our ideas and this partnership will be a huge boost for our association. We will keep you informed about this
Renewal raates have been satisfactory, thank you all for your support, if you haven’t renewed yet or when the time comes (renewal end of the same month you joined last year), you can send a cheque addressed to Foal for 25 euros or 40 euros (benefactor) with a stamped, addressed envelope to

Annual General Meeting
We already have a date : 20th June at 6pm at the Martin Luther King venue (drinks after) so make room in your diaries but we will remind you nearer the time.
We plan to have a BIG BOOK SALE soon as we are getting quite overwhelmed with books and a book sale is a good way for us to raise funds for new books. Don’t forget, we have a permanent Book Sale at the library
