The Alliance Françoise de Washington French Language and Cultural Center will
host author and journalist David Downie on Wednesday,
October 12 at 6:30 pm. Downie will sign copies of his new book
Paris: A Journey Into the City of Light after a slideshow lecture. The book is a collection of 30 essays Downie has
written over the past twenty years, in his attempt to catch the “soul” of the city.
According to the Paris, Paris website, this appears to be the last
confirmed book tour date. But here is something cool — the author/photographer
team of Downie and Alison Harris are promoting personalized
custom tours based on the chapters, stories and
photos compiled in their book.
