20-11-2014 Poetry night

Dear all,

Join us this Thursday November 20th at 7:00 pm for an evening with Xavier de Labouret who will take us on a journey through American poetry. He will help us discover our favorite poets through listening & reading various works.

M. de Labouret, who is interested in every form of artistic expression, publishes photos on an internet gallery (Dans la boîte de Xavier: ). He also performs public readings of literary texts in several locations in Bordeaux. His main areas of interest are contemporary drama & poetry from around the world.
See our website at for more details and to find directions to the Association.

We'll see if Bordeaux-USA can recreate the mood of the 50's when the beat generation used to snap their fingers as the poet delivered his poems.
