Celebrate the Holidays in Parisian Style this Thursday, Deceber 12, at Alliance Francaise

Eiffel Tower in Winter

America is my country and Paris is my hometown.
Gertrude Stein

Alliance Francaise and the Wanderland Writers will ring in the holidays in style this Thursday, December 12, with une fête de Noël and readings from the new travel anthology Wandering in Paris: Luminaries and Love in the City of Light.

It will be a spirited evening of music, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, door prizes, and readings. Please join us—the event is free and open to the public.

The readings will visit the enchanting worlds of the Paris Opera; the salons of Thomas Jefferson, Berte Morisot, Gertrude Stein and Anaïs Nin; Paris culture du moment, as well as transplanted cultures ranging from a hammam to a Gorille Blanc.

I’ll be reading along with editors Linda Watanabe McFerrin and Joanna Biggar and other authors including Unity Barry, Antoinette Constable, Kitty Hughes, Laurie McAndish King and Cindy Racicot. Hope to see you there.

If you’ll be in the Bay Area that evening, please join us for delicious bites and delightful tales.
