Kilton Library French Conversation Hour. The first Wednesday of the month at 5:15. Former Duke French professor, Martha van der Drift, hosts a free, monthly French conversation hour. All levels are welcome to participate in an hour of relaxed conversation to practice French and meet other Francophiles. Topics and activities will evolve with interest. A film in French follows the discussion, but participants do not need to attend both events (but, are certainly welcome too)!
