French All Around Us - Panel discussion

Date(s) - 09/28/2022
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dana Center


French is literally everywhere – in our history and values, in our families, and in our neighborhoods and communities, from the croissant or macaron in our local café or bistro to family and place names across the country. These are the stories of French language and Francophone culture in the US, but, even more importantly, the stories of Franco-Americans – ranging from descendants of the earliest French explorers and French-Canadian immigrants to the newest arrivals in the US from throughout the Francophone world. This book is of interest to all of us, whatever our background, as the experience of French language and Francophone culture in the US has similarities to and intersects with the many languages and cultures that have contributed to the American experience.

Join the FAC and several authors for what promises to be a fun and lively discussion about French All Around Us.
