There is always so much going on in Paris and the month of May is a great time to visit . Lisa Buros, of Your Paris Experience, offered to share a few of the best highlights of this month’s happenings with our readers.
American Library of Paris
The American Library of Paris offers many fascinating activities, book-signings and lectures to enjoy throughout the year. Consider the excellent ‘An Evening with…’ series, from hearing best-selling authors to book-signings and more. We’re lucky because the Library is located on rue du General Camou in the 7th and near to many of our Paris Apartment rentals. The Library has been a focal point for many intellectual and cultural activities for Anglophones in Paris, since before World War I. In addition the Village Voice offers lectures by esteemed authors.
