Groupe de Lecture


The Institut français d’Ecosse offers regular activities and classes for book lovers. Once a month, the group meets up to discuss a couple of books selected in advance (from classical to contemporary French literature) and discovers other members’ views on them. Meetings are taking place at the Institut français d’Ecosse, usually on the last Thursday of the month from 13:15 to 14:15.

The discussion is in French. A minimum B2 level is strongly recommended.

The Groupe de Lecture is for members only. Admission is free, but the number of places is limited; we recommend booking your space in advance. Sign up online or contact us by email.
