Barbara Kingsolver at Shakespeare and Company

DSCF3115 Guess who I got to meet? One of my favorite authors, Barbara Kingsolver, who wrote The Poisonwood Bible among many other wonderful fiction novels, recently held a booksigning at Shakespeare and Company in Paris. I bought her latest book, Flight Behaviour, which she signed for me. I love that I can walk a few blocks along the Seine, in full view of Notre Dame Cathedral to the most marvelous book store to meet one of my heroines!

David Lebovitz Book Signing

DSCF3114 One of my favorite food authors and local Paris bloggers is David Lebovitz, whom I’ve been following ever since I read his book, “The Sweet Life in Paris” prior to leaving the US.  I recently  got to meet him in person at a book signing about half a mile from our apartment. The event was at a local cooking school, La Cuisine Paris. Not only did I get to meet David and have him sign another of his books, “The Perfect Scoop“, for me, but the Glaces Glazed ice cream truck was also there! Glaces Glazed serves unique gourmet blends of top quality ingredients in limited edition flavors. I sampled Black Sugar Sex Magic, a combination of chocolate, wasabi and ginger which had the most chocolatey flavor I have ever experienced. Hugh had their Mohito de Tokyo with rum, lemon, and mint – yum I think he said.
