Paris to the Moon
7 PM – 9 PM
Our popular French-themed dinner discussions at Spring Mill Café continues this fall with Dinner #2 featuring “Paris to the Moon” by Adam Gopnick.
In 1995, New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik, his wife, and their infant son left the familiar comforts and hassles of New York City for the urbane glamour of the City of Light. As Gopnik describes in this funny and tender book, the dual processes of navigating a foreign city and becoming a parent are not completely dissimilar journeys–both hold new routines, new languages, a new set of rules by which everyday life is lived. With singular wit and insight, Gopnik weaves the magical with the mundane in a wholly delightful, often hilarious look at what it was to be an American family man in Paris at the end of the twentieth century.
