Independence Day Picnic 2018



Bordeaux-USA provides to residents of Gironde the opportunity to share Franco-American friendship, culture and ideas through English-speaking events and our Library in the heart of Bordeaux.
We can try for FREE to take part to one talk (Thursday evening 7:00 pm) OR one conversation hour (see 'Practice your English' tab).


 Our member, Christophe Becel, has spoken to us several times about his 30 years of work in & his passion for the field of Architecture. Tonight he will join us to share something a bit more personal in a presentation called My Dream Architectural Trip Across the USA. Let's let Christophe be our tour guide on his fascinating dream trip.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
