Elaine Sciolino, former Paris Bureau Chief of the New York Times, will share stories from her adventures along the most romantic river in the world. From her Paris home, she will tell stories of artists, writers, musicians, and filmmakers who were inspired by the river, and will regale us with tales of the wonderful real life characters she met on her journey down the Seine as she charts a course through its history that includes Roman conquerors, Viking invaders, World War ll soldiers, and the ashes of Joan of Arc and of Napoléon Bonaparte in its current.
Along the way, she will reveal how the river that created Paris and shaped the lives of its inhabitants has touched her own life. If sponsored by RML – If you need assistance setting up Zoom, contact email@example.com. Co-Sponsored with the Rogers Memorial Library.
