CANCELLED - Meet the Author ! Zoé Brocaille

Date: 19 Apr 2024, 1:30pm - 2:45pm GMT London, Lisbon

The Alliance Française Glasgow is delighted to host author Zoé Brocaille for a discussion on her novel "Journal d’une fausse Parisienne in London" and her writing journey in a relaxed and francophone environment.

Ten years ago, French-born Zoe Brocaille decided to up sticks and move to London for a short spell to broaden her work experience. Little did she realise that her decision would morph into a long-term life change. London piqued Zoe’s curiosity and captured her attention, in particular the often difficult, sometimes hilarious, yet always interesting quirks of an expatriate life in the UK.

When the pandemic hit, what could have been a challenging situation for Zoe instead became a wake-up call when she realised she could use her time during lockdowns to achieve one of her dreams: to write a book. In Journal d’une fausse Parisienne in London, we follow the life of Xenia, a single, forty-something, child-free workaholic navigating the trials of the pandemic with a desire for a more meaningful life.

Drawing on her background in psycho-sociology and using her expatriate status to provide an alternative perspective, Zoe offers readers a sharper focus and helps them identify what is important, what to fight for and when to let go.

Zoé will be speaking at the library of the Alliance Française on Friday, 19th April, from 1:30 pm to 2:45 pm.

Price: Free for Alliance members and £4 for non-members.

Language: French, Q&A in French or English.

You can purchase the novel (price is £17) at the Alliance Française Language Office.

Minimum recommended level: A2
