Join us in discussing this Prix Goncourt-winning novel about the Anschluss, the 1938 Annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany. Discussion is in French and ideal for advanced French students.

"L’Ordre du jour (“The order of the day” or “The agenda”) is a short historical narrative centered on the Anschluss, the 1938 annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany. The result of painstaking research, it is related to “fiction” in the sense that real historical events are arranged and narrated in ways that are somewhat similar to the suspenseful, dramatic storytelling techniques of traditional historical novels."—www.worldliteraturetoday.org
