On November 8th, my co-author and I attended the American Library in Paris Book Award ceremony 2018.
It was held in the gorgeous Hôtel de Talleyrand where the Marshall plan was signed in 1948. By being there, we felt we inserted ourselves into the history we had written about in “A Whale in Paris.”
Although our novel didn’t win the award, we had a lovely time and are grateful to have been invited. Thank you American Library in Paris for a sparkling soiree and congratulations to Julian Jackson for winning with “A Certain Idea of France: The Life of Charles de Gaulle!”
