Americans in Paris

23 November, 2018, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Spend an evening immersed in the world of Paris in the 1920s as Sarah Churchwell and Alex Preston lead you on a Hemingway and Fitzgerald-inspired walking tour of Paris. You’ll visit the bars and bistros that they frequented, walk the same streets they walked and see a host of the places they lived, from the Rue Cardinal Lemoine to the Hotel d’Angleterre. You’ll learn more about the relationship between Hemingway and Fitzgerald, the literature they produced during and about their time in Paris, as well as the work of the many writers and artists who were also in Paris during this brightest period in the cultural history of the city of lights.

The walk will start and end (with a drinks reception) at the atmospheric Reid Hall only a few paces from Hemingway’s beloved Closerie de Lilas.

Please come dressed comfortably for 90 minutes or so of walking.

If you have any mobility issues please let us know ahead of time and we will work with you to try to find a solution.
