    ABOUT THE EVENT

    This event is a showcase of France and French culture and it is themed as 'La rentrée'.

    'La rentrée' in France

    The word shows up in all kinds of contexts, from the la rentrée politique when the government heads back to Paris to la Rentrée du Cinéma for when the more serious fare kicks summer blockbusters out of the theaters.

    But the French take La Rentrée scolaire the most seriously of all, from lengthy news reports on how heavy a child's schoolbag, le cartable, should be to the announcement of the first teacher's strike of the school year.
