French History 4 - The Unexpected History of the 19th and 20th Centuries

These and other aspects of French history that affect life today will be explored by retired history professor Jane Crisler in a lecture-discussion. Notes and reading list, coffee or tea break with biscuits provided.

Registration limited; please reserve and pay in advance. Salle Polyvalente, 22570 Gouarec. 2.30pm. Members 5€, Guests 8€.

If you would like to attend and have a particular question for the speakers, send it in and we will forward it to the appropriate person so that they have ample time to prepare their response.

Please reserve by Friday 16 November. Salle Polyvalente, 22570 Gouarec. 2.30pm. Members 2€, Guests 5€.
