Paris: "Contradictions, Myths, Charm"
A memorable opportunity to hear author Thirza Vallois.
Thirza Vallois is the world-renowned author of the legendary "Around and About Paris" series and "Romantic Paris". She contributes regularly to the international media - BBC, PBS, CNN, the Financial Times, United Airlines' Hemispheres. She has Paris at her finger tips! Almost all of the press is her new book about the last hidden corner of France : "Aveyron, A Bridge to French Arcadia" (www.thirzavallois.com). This week we will discover the second arrondissement — from the famous market street, rue Montorgueil, to the historical neighborhood of the press, where Emile Zola's J'accuse, in the defense of Alfred Dreyfus, was printed, and where Jean Jaurès was assassinated.... And where Louis XV's last mistress the du Barry was first discovered working in a bordello. The neighbourhood of the notorious Cour des Miracles, described by Victor Hugo in the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and the burial place of playwright Molière, and fable writer La Fontaine. The route taken by Louis XVI's tubmbril on its way to the guillotine. If you think you know Paris well, you will be amazed how much more you can learn as Thirza Vallois spins the enthralling story of Patricia's neighbourhood, past and present
