Our Book Groups will restart in the Autumn. We welcome any new members -- so do contact us should you like to be notified of the new meeting dates. We hold a number of monthly book groups. At the moment we run two evening groups (Tuesday and Friday) plus a Friday afternoon Classic Book Group. All meetings are held upstairs in the bookshop unless otherwise advised.
French Conversation Classes
Stop Learning French, Speak It!
Our French conversation classes with Dr Thierry Guillo (nominated to the Teaching Recognition Award for New Jersey, USA in 2002) take place every Thursday and start at 10:45 through to 12:00. Dr Guillo's method is solely focused on French conversation underpinned by solid grammatical knowledge.
Stitch n' Bitch Workshops
Sandra Lawson's workshops cover knitting, crochet and all types of needlework and everyone welcome. Sandra originally trained as a Needlework teacher and over the years has developed her skills and enjoyed designing unique sweaters, babywear and menswear. Her next workshops will be Thursday 27th June starting at 2:00 and ending when everyone leaves.
You'll find we stock a great selection of Rental DVDs ranging from Action & Adventure, Thrillers, Romance, Musical, Drama, Comedy, as well as a fun range for children. DVDs arrive on a weekly basis so pop round when you're next in Valbonne! We charge €5 per DVD, normally until 4:00 the next day, but on Saturdays (for the same price) you can keep it until Tuesday.
WEIRD THINGS CUSTOMERS SAY IN BOOKSHOPS...
BOOKSELLER: Ummm... the kind you eat or the ones you play drums with?
CUSTOMER: (eagerly): The ones you play drums with. Does that mean you carry them?
BOOKSELLER: No, I'm sorry; we don't have either. I was just curious to know which type you thought a bookshop might have.
