David Downie’s Paris, Paris book tour


Travel writer David Downie, who visited my Paris American Academy classes last month as a guest lecturer, will be touring the United States in coming weeks to promote his excellent new book, Paris, Paris: Journey into the City of Light (which contains photos by Alison Harris and an introduction by Diane Johnson). Anyone with a passion for Paris is advised to pick up his book and catch one of his events, which are listed (through September) below.
