Wonderful reading event last night with drinks and conversation at the Librairie Ulysse! I counted about 20 folks at one point. It settled down to a solid dozen for both readings. I read chapter 32, and my actress wife read chapter 5, both en français for the very first time. Thanks to Aurore for the ‘theatralisation’ of the readings, making them more akin to a performance. This must have influenced the public, which bought a couple copies of French License!
We brought mulled wine, expecting a chilly evening. Rain showers were even predicted at one point. Never fear, it was mild and dry outside, with clear skies exposing a near-full moon. A wonderful night to be out, walking the bridges between the Ile Saint-Louis and the Ile de la Cité, and the bright moon floating above Notre-Dame.
Huge thanks to Catherine and Dominique for welcoming us to the Librairie Ulysse! People were enjoying themselves so much, the duo delayed closing time for two hours past the schedule! We finally pulled ourselves away from good conversation at 11 p.m.
