Did you know that Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is 75 years old this year?

Join us as we discover (or rediscover) this novel as adults. Using class discussions, readings, performance, conversation and reflection, you'll creatively delve deeper into this simple novel that is profound and complex

During our 4 weeks together, we will learn more about Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and then 'play' with his most celebrated novel.

Each week, we will read parts of this “children’s book for grown-ups”, act it out, explore some of the characters the petit prince meets during his odyssey, and then do a little Jazz improvisation with the ideas and how they pertain to our own experiences.

All in the comfort of a Zoom Room. This workshop is for intermediate level students and will be taught in French. You will need a copy of the book in French. Please download the book as a PDF (a link will be sent in the confirmation email) or purchase one from your favorite bookseller .
