Flight to Arras

For our next daytime discussion, we will be reading:

Flight to Arras by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"On May 22, 1940, with France on the point of surrender, Antoine de Saint-Exupery set off on a quixotic reconnaissance mission from Orly to Arras. This lightly fictionalized account of that journey, described in Time as 'a magic text, at times almost biblical,' is a profound and passionate meditation on mortality, war and defeat, and a superb evocation of the experience of flight."

--London Review of Books

The discussion will be on Tuesday, November 25th at noon in the White Mountains Community College Fortier Library. Bring your lunch!
