ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 210 In this 210th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the French story of “Aurore Dupin at Play.” This is a true story about a young girl growing up in France during the Napoleonic wars.
This story is about Aurore Dupin, in her last years at her grandmother's château of Nohant near the town of Bourges. As a teenager she was sent to the Couvent des Anglaises (Convent of the English) to further her education. Here she learns English and how to drink tea, which was almost unheard of in France at the time.
We also read about how Aurore makes friends with other like-minded girls and the adventures and escapades they get up to exploring the 100 year-old convent founded by English nuns in Paris in the mid-1600’s. Will they be able to reveal the Legend of the Concealed Prisoner? and just where does the Stairway to Nowhere go? What did they find when they mistakenly discovered an entrance to Paris’ catacombs under the convent?
You are invited to download and read the story of the further adventures of the irrepressible Aurore Dupin and her new school friends.
