Literature Group

Goal:

To introduce and familiarize ourselves to writings and analysis of Afro-American and Caribbean authors from the black community.

 

How:

The choice of the authors is made by IDHES and the members of the club.

For each book, members will receive by e-mail two of the most significant pages of the book

The session has 15 minutes of presentation followed by 45 minutes of discussion.

The presentation is made by a member who volunteered or by the author himself/herself when possible.

 

Dates:

The 2nd Friday of each month from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.
