Our very first Frenchly Book Club took place on March 23rd, 2022, at 6PM.
We discussed French novelist, Alice Zeniter’s, moving and inspiring novel, The Art of Losing, about the Algerian War and its aftermath and consequences.
Joining us was Frank Wynne, the translator of the novel, to talk about translating this beautiful work into English. Wynne is the translator of many award-winning books and is also the author of the novel, I Was Vermeer.
The event was hosted by Caitlin Shetterly, Editor in Chief of Frenchly and author of Frenchly’s popular weekly Le Weekend newsletter.
