Karen from BookBath and Tamara at Thyme For Tea are hosting Paris in July – celebrating their love of all things French and Parisian. It will run from the 1st – 31st July 2011 and the aim of the month is to celebrate our French experiences through reading, watching, listening to, observing, cooking and eating all things French.
I haven’t joined any challenges so far this year but this is too tempting to resist and it also fits in perfectly with two books I’ve been wanting to read: Summer Will Show by Sylvia Townsend Warner and The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery.
Recently I read The Paris Wife by Paula McLain – a fictional account of Ernest Hemingway and his first wife and their time in Paris in the 1920s. Bellezza then came up with the lovely idea of reading some Ernest Hemingway together and we chose A Moveable Feast, Hemingway’s thoughts on Paris. We will post about it on June 30 – as it turns out the perfect entrée for Paris in July reading.
Please join us if you would like to.
Pop over to Bellezza for her invitation and appetite whetting montage of Mr Hemingway.
Lots of fun…
