Book club #1
August & September edition
The first edition will be online via Zoom
The JCCFQ and its Ambassadors are proud to launch a monthly Book Club! The Book Club team will offer you a selection of several books and podcasts to discover around a particular theme reflecting the values of the JCCFQ.
This initiative of five Ambassadors will introduce you to authors in order to stimulate reflection and open dialogue on issues and topics that affect women. This literary activity is as much for those who wish to find new recommendations as for those who wish to participate in group discussions on the themes.
This month's theme is "positive thinking".
The first meeting will take place online on September 28 (more details to come) in a relaxed, warm and unpretentious atmosphere. To participate, you only need to have read one book from the list.
Les petites choses by Ana Roy (FR)
Light is found more often than we think in the little things of everyday life. The illustrator and graphic designer Ana Roy offers us a collection of small things, small moments of happiness brilliantly drawn. Each page leads us to a memory, an emotion or a need that illuminates and soothes us.

The art of not giving a fuck by Mark Manson (ANG)
This book presents a bold approach to personal development. The author explains that the secret to a good life is not to worry about more things; it is to worry about less and only about what is valuable, immediate and important. Indeed, the search for a positive experience is itself a positive experience. And paradoxically, accepting a negative experience is a positive experience.

Les maisons by Fanny Britt (FR)
“What happens when you feel like you’re not the person you thought you were going to be? Didn’t the future hold something else in store for us? Which house should we choose? The Homes of Fanny Britt is a beautiful and luminous novel, sometimes funny and most of all very touching.”

“Deeply, passionately and laughing out loud, Shonda Rhimes reveals in Year of Yes how saying YES changed – and saved – her life. And inspires readers around the world to change their own lives with one little word: Yes.”
