For the month of February, la bibliothèque is hosting some blind dates... with books!

Most of us are a little guilty of judging a book by its cover. In the hopes of combating this instinct, we're inviting you to take a leap of faith with some books carefully curated by our librarian for our Rendez-vous surprise avec un livre.

With choices emballés for all levels, we hope you'll give a blind recommendation a chance!
If you enjoy your selection, be sure to come back for our Bouillon de lectures on February 21st to discuss your book en français.

Ingrid began her passion for French through the immersion program in Milton, MA, and has followed it around France and the world. She took a break from this first love to pursue a B.A. in English with a minor in Irish Studies at Boston College and is currently completing a Masters of Library and Information Sciences at Simmons College. She is thrilled to meld her excitement for libraries and French language and culture in her position at the Center!
