Lisa Anselmo, the story behind her new memoir, My (Part-Time) Paris Life: How Running Away Brought Me Home


Meet author and travel-show host, Lisa Anselmo, and hear the story behind her new memoir My (Part-Time) Paris Life: How Running Away Brought Me Home (Thomas Dunn Books/St. Martin’s Press). After the death of her mother from breast cancer, Anselmo bought a tiny apartment in the 11th arrondissement, then took a leap of faith and left a corporate job to live “the dream” in Paris. But her high-school French went only so far when Paris gave her a strong dose of real life. From dating to home ownership in a foreign country, Anselmo shares her heartwarming -- and sometimes heartbreaking -- tales of learning to live like a local in the City of Light.

Anselmo will be signing copies of her memoir, My (Part-Time) Paris Life, which will be available for sale at the event.

About the author:

Anselmo splits her time between New York and Paris, and has a blog, My (Part-Time) Paris Life, as well as an inspirational new Web series of the same name that takes viewers to Paris's locals-only neighborhoods, and features Parisians and expats who are finding success by following their hearts. Anselmo is also the co-founder of No Love Locks, an association working with the mayor of Paris to rescue the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Site currently devastated by the “love locks” trend.

The presentation will be followed by wine, cheese, grapes, and baguettes.

Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 3:00 PM.

$10 for Alliance Française member; $15 for non-members
