Reading is a pleasure, an escape. If I had to read in French all of the time, it would quickly (hmm, make that instantaneously) become arduous. A chore.
The Village Voice Bookshop is one of these gems. Run by a French woman enthralled by Anglo-American literature, it often hosts readings and events.
I have a guest post about one of these events over on the wonderfully-titled website “No Country for Young Women.”
I learned a lot about “Paris and Her Remarkable Women” (the title of the book). Feel free to check it out!
