Category: French Culture

Today Annie Sargent brings you a conversation with Keri Maher about her new book The Paris Bookseller. Annie wanted to talk to Keri because she really enjoyed her book about Shakespeare and Company, the iconic bookstore in Paris. It’s a fascinating story as you will see.

After the interview you'll hear Annie's personal update and news about travel to France. This podcast is supported by donors and listeners who buy my tours and services, including my very popular itinerary planning service. You can browse all of that at Annie’s Boutique.

The Paris Bookseller

The Paris Bookseller starts with the story of two women in the early 1900s. They are in love and start an exciting project: open a bookstore for English books in Paris. As their project gets off the ground they rub shoulders with the legends of the Lost Generation: Ernest Hemmingway, Gertrude Stein and the most central of all: James Joyce.

Walk the Latin Quarter with the legendary founder of Shakeaspeare & Company, Silvia Beach. Annie was enchanted by the world of the formidable woman who was the force behind the publication of Ulysse's and the amazing cast of characters who surrounded her.
