Patricia Laplante-Collins created Paris Soirees Dinners on Sunday and Paris Networking Cocktail events on Wednesday on the Ile St Louis to bring Americans in Paris together with Ex-pats, French and the International Community in a global meet-up. Evenings feature Literary, Art, New Age, Business, African-American and Black Paris themes presented in English. There is an intimate salon atmosphere and the focus is on meeting people in Paris and creating friendships. Patricia is also the founder of African American Literary Soirees and regularly hosts Paris Literary Salons. For Patricia's profiles visit:

Patricia writes on being an Expat:
"... As the years went by, I also realized that the feeling of being foreign and other, transcends even race. You are not part of their (French) culture. It doesn't matter who you are or of what origin you are. You're either French (in your head and behavior), or not. When I began to see that, I began to identify myself as an expat. The sum of being an American who lives in Paris, an African-American trying to find roots here, minus not being French - but seeing life internationally - on a large scale and permanently, equals my personal experience of being an expat."
