BOOKS & COFFEE
First Friday of the month in a café downtown.
CLASSICS BOOK CLUB
Expand the mind as well as the definition itself of what makes a classic a classic. First Tuesday of the month.
TURNING THE PAGE
A get-together on the last Monday of every other month to discuss a good read. For those who wish to continue the conversation, a potluck lunch follows.
COCKTAILS & CONVERSATION
Ladies’ Night Out! Each month, we meet on varying evenings in different bars around central Bordeaux.
Un déjeuner mensuel où l’on parle exclusivement en français. Françaises ou non sont toutes invitées à participer. L’idée est d’offrir aux non-francophones l’opportunité d’affiner leur français parlé. Les déjeuners ont généralement lieu en semaine (exceptionnellement le weekend) dans des restaurants sur Bordeaux ou chez un membre du BWC (“déjeuner-partage”).
First Monday of each month for one hour of English and one hour of French conversation.
> Creativity and Games
First Thursday of the month. All levels welcome, even if you have never played before.
CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP
Participation is via online writing prompts, tips, submissions, critiques, and suggestions. Occasionally, we meet at a local café to share insights.
Meets once each month. All levels of skill are welcome, even those who have never played before.
OUTSIDE THE BOX
Meets monthly at venues around town for entertaining events like pub quizzes, escape games, laser tag, and other suggestions from the group.
> Culture and Entertainment
AROUND THE CORNER
Monthly one time events, tours, and activities to explore an area or topic of interest to members.
