REED LECTURE CONVERSATION
Lafayette  Slept Here
 
C'est ainsi que le Saturday Evening Post décrit le tout premier accès de culte de la celébrité.
C'était en 1824, et l'objet de cette adulation publique généralisée n'était autre que le marquis de La Fayette qui entreprit une tournée triomphale de dix-sept mois à travers les États-Unis.

Never Fall Down by Patricia McCornick
   
It is the unforgettable story of Arn Chorn-Pond, who defied the odds to survive the Cambodian genocide of 1975-1979 and the labor camps of the Khmer Rouge.
Based on a true story of Cambodian advocate Arn Chorn-Pond, and authentically told from his point of view as a young boy, This is an achingly raw and powerful historical novel about a child of war who becomes a man of peace.

In this month reading, Baron de Charlus is the main point of focus. The narrator is spending time with him discussing the war. Charlus' German ancestry makes him judge the war differently than other French men. He balances his French patriotic feelings with his German affinities which makes for an intriguing and unbiased view. They later meet Charles Morel who is still admired by Charlus despite his cruel behavior and his ingratitude.
