Meeting with Catherine Testa on Thursday June the 8th

On June the 8th, come and meet Catherine Testa who'll be talking about optimism at Le Bookshop. Catherine Testa is a businesswoman and a globetrotter. Her experience and her trips led her to the following analysis: French people often only see the negative! In 2016, she quit everything to co-create the website www.loptimisme.com which has been successful from the start. Her conviction: optimism is a driving force, and that’s what she's been communicating to a growing community on the internet.

She'll be here to talk about her book*, and share her experience. It’s time to put some light and positivity in our lives!



*The book is in French but Catherine Testa speaks good English and can switch between languages if ever you don't manage to understand everything.

Book of the month

"The Clocks in This House All Tell Different Times"

by Xan Brooks




Summer 1923: the modern world. Orphaned Lucy Marsh climbs into the back of an old army truck and is whisked off to the woods north of London – a land haunted by the past, where lost souls and monsters conceal themselves in the trees.

In a sunlit clearing she meets the ‘funny men’, a quartet of disfigured ex-soldiers named after Dorothy’s companions in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Here are the loved and the damaged, dark forests and darker histories, and the ever-present risk of discovery and violent retribution. Xan Brooks’ stunning debut is heartbreaking, disturbing and redemptive.

"Dirt Music" by Tim Winton


Georgie Jutland is a mess. At forty, with her career in ruins, she finds herself stranded in White Point with a fisherman she doesn't love and two kids whose dead mother she can never replace. Leached of all confidence, she spends her days in isolated tedium and her nights in a blur of vodka and self-recrimination. One morning, in the boozy pre-dawn gloom, she sees a shadow drifting up on the beach below—a loner called Luther Fox, with danger in his wake.

Full of unforgettable characters, Dirt Music is Tim Winton's classic love song to land and place.
