Cara Black Takes Us to Paris! reading & talk
March 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Each year, Noe Valley author Cara Black takes a few lucky readers on a real tour of the Paris she writes about in her bestselling Aimee Leduc mysteries. She has set her novels in 18 of the 20 Paris arrondisements, or, en anglais, districts. Her latest book, Murder on the Left Bank, was set in the 13th Arrondisement, which, as Cara tells it, is not all Left Bank coffee houses and famous bookstores. It’s also home to Paris’ Quartier Asiatique, including the homes and businesses of many of the city’s Chinese, Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Lao residents. It is in this part of the 13th that Cara’s novel is situated and to which on Thursday, March 14, Cara will take us in words and photos and excerpts from her book. The 60-minute tour starts at 7pm at La Boulangerie, 3898 24th St.
Admission to the reading is free, but La Boulangerie de San Francisco is staying open late for us, so come early and buy yourself une café and a dessert before we fasten our seatbelts and we’re off to Paris!
