Brian Denyer will present a program about French Art exhibited in Connecticut museums Thursday, October 23 at 7pm at the Brookfield Public Library. Denyer, a Board member of AFNWCT, was a teacher of French for 33 years at the Taft School. At Taft, he also directed the school’s away programs and led students to France during the summer. In each of his French courses, he added a mini-program of French art.

Brian will again present this conference in French on November 21. Handouts will be in English and the slides themselves are visual so beginners and non-French speakers will still enjoy the presentation. The evening’s event will be held at our AF Center in Southbury.

As an added treat, cheese, fruit and desserts will be served and participants will be invited to taste the “Beaujolais Nouveau”, the fruity, young red wine released for sale every year on the third Thursday of November.

Admission is $10 for AFNWCT Members ($20 for non-members). Send RSVP & check to AFNWCT by 11/18.
