Our first guest this month is « the book lady » of the lower 9th  ward, Laurence Copel, a French woman living in New Orleans, who operates The Lower Ninth Street Library out of her home. We’ll hear from Laurence about her volunteer work spreading literacy in her community through weekly reading sessions, book distribution via her pedal-powered book mobile and an annual book parade. Notre première invitée est Laurence Copel, une française ici à la Nouvelle-Orléans qui a fondé une bibliothèque dans sa propre maison dans le quartier Lower Ninth Ward. Elle nous expliquera son travail et les évènements qu’elle fait pour augmenter le taux d’alphabétisation chez les enfants.


French Corner:
In this month’s French Corner, our all-French segment, we pass the microphone to the French members of our New Orleans community to hear their reflections on the recent attack on the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. We join our French community members during a vigil organized on January 8th by parents from the local immersion school École Bilingue at the Irish House, following a speech by the Consul General of France and the singing of the Marseillaise. Dans cet épisode de « French Corner », on donne la parôle aux français qui s’expriment à la suite des attentants contre Charlie Hebdo.
