See below some special events we have planned for March in honor of the International Mois de la Francophonie and the local DC Francophonie Festival!

Ongoing in March:

Pick a country, pick an author!

Normally we blend all our French literature together regardless of author's nationality. For the Francophonie festival we have pulled from our stacks to create a special selection organized by country. Come discover a new country, a new author, a new perspective!   And/or join us for Parlons Bouquins (see below) to discover new ones and discuss!


Now Playing at Bonjour Books DC: 
We almost always have French music playing at the store. Our current Pandora stations are curated based on various genres from old timers like Yves Montand to 60s French pop radio to today's hottest artists like Maitre Gims and Aya Nakamura.

In honor of la Francophonie, we've updated our contemporary selection with a new Pandora station.  Drop by and tell us your favorite music and we'll add to our playlists!

Local Student Showcase: 
Celebrating La Francophonie! 

This month come to Bonjour Books DC in Kensington to see a display of work by students at Rochambeau, the French International School (March 4-15) and Montgomery County Public Schools' Sligo Creek Elementary School (March 16-30) inspired by La Francophonie! 

This is the first year that we are coordinating this display and plan to expand to many more of our local schools French students soon! Please contact bonjourbooksdc@gmail.com if yo are interested in working with us to highlight the work of your French students.
