at the Greenwich Arts Council
299 Greenwich Avenue | Meeting Room
A vibrant, enchanting tour of the Seine from longtime New York Times Foreign Correspondent, Elaine Sciolino. Elaine writes with the authority of a historian, the sleuthing skills of a journalist, and the voice of a storyteller eager to recount the tales of those who have been touched by the Seine” said David Bell, Lapidus Professor of History at Princeton.
Sciolino’s keen eye and vivid prose bring the river to life as she discovers its origins on a remote plateau of Burgundy, where a pagan goddess healed pilgrims at an ancient temple. She follows the Seine to Le Havre, where it meets the sea. Braiding memoir, travelogue, and history through the Seine’s winding route, Sciolino offers a love letter to Paris and the river at its heart and invites readers to explore its magic.
