RENDEZ VOUS CHEZ PATRICIAThis Sunday 30 September At 18h30 - * Patricia's Birthday Celebration!Visit Patricia's website -

Our Guest of Honor:
Leonard Pitt Author
"Walks Through Lost Paris: A Journey Into the Heart Of Historic Paris."

Lost Paris: Between 1853 and 1870, Hundreds Of Streets disappeared in Paris. Nearly 20,000 buildings were demolished and 45,000 buildings constructed in their place. Much of the city's history was lost as Medieval and Renaissance quarters crumbled.

When Leonard Pitt discovered that the Parisian neighborhood in which he once lived was entirely rebuilt during this period, he plunged headfirst into archives to try to reconstruct the city that was demolished.

Walking through neighborhoods with 19th-century maps and photos in hand, he searched for lost places Leonard Pitt left a career in advertising in 1963 to study mime in Paris with Etienne Decroux. In 1970, he returned to the U.S. and directed a school of physical theater for eighteen years, attracting students from around the world. He has performed and taught throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia. He lives in Berkeley, California. Visit:
*From Patricia: I am especially pleased that Leonard will speak for my Birthday celebration as the history of Paris is one of my favorite subjects and one of the approaches that I use most to understand living in Paris as an Expat. Leonard will also speak at Sun 14 October's dinner on another new book - not about Paris and in an entirely different vein: "A Small Moment Of Great Illumination : Searching for Valentine Greatrakes, the Master Healer. " (Patricia's actual birthday is 1 October)
