Journée de la Francophonie: “Fables of La Fontaine” – Chania 16th March

The French-Hellenic Association of Chania invites you to this reading marathon on the occasion of the Journée de la Francophonie.
“Come and read with us! Celebrate the joy of reading with us!”

WHEN:Saturday 16th March 11.00
WHERE: Sailing Club, Old Port, Chania

“This year, we chose the “Fables de La Fontaine”, a work inspired by the myths of Aesop, which clearly illustrates the influence of the Greek culture on the French culture and signals the movement of arts across borders and languages.
It is also a reading that brings sweet memories to the older people but teaches and entertains the little ones.
Come and spend the morning together, building the bridge that unites cultures.
We are waiting for you on Saturday, March 16th at 11am at the Sailing Club of Chania, on the old port.”

L’Association Franco-Hellénique de La Canée, à l’occasion de la Journée de la Francophonie, participe aux Marathons de Lecture pour la Francophonie pour la cinquième année. C’est un événement sur la langue et la culture françaises qui crée à nouveau un lien avec la chaîne des 25 villes grecques participantes.
Cette année, on a choisi les “Fables de La Fontaine”, une œuvre inspirée des mythes d’Ésope, qui illustre clairement l’influence de la culture grecque sur la culture française et signale le mouvement des arts au-delà des frontières et des langues.
C’est aussi une lecture qui apporte de doux souvenirs aux plus âgés mais enseigne et divertit les plus petits.
Venez célébrer la joie de lire avec nous, de se rappeler de ces mythes.
Venez passer la matinée ensemble en construisant le pont qui unit les cultures.

Lydia

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socialising, good books and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and , there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world.But I never lost my love of Crete for a minute. And four years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
