The last Friday of each month AFN members and their guests meet to enjoy an entertaining and informative evening. Alliance Française de Nashville invites historians, artists, wine experts, distinguished foreign guests, and a variety of other fascinating people to be the presenters at these events. One month an art historian may intrigue us with a study of French paintings, while at the next meeting an author may reveal to us Jack Kerouac’s francophone roots. Past presenters include The Nashville Symphony’s Giancarlo Guerrero, Musica’s sculptor Alan LeQuire, the owner of Little Gourmand and delightful culinarian Guenièvre Milliner, and Michael Shane Neal, the portrait artist who painted the US Ambassador to France Charles Rivkin.
Each member or guest brings a favorite dish to serve eight to ten people and a bottle of wine to share. Please note that this event is for adults only. AFN Members attend for free, and their guests pay $5 each.
Soirées begin at 7:00 pm and end at 9:00 pm.
Soriées usually take place at: Sugartree Neighborhood Clubhouse, 4031 Woodmont Blvd., Nashville, TN 37205
