An enchanting tour of France from New York Times foreign correspondent and best-selling author Elaine Sciolino.  

In the follow-up to her bestselling book THE ONLY STREET IN PARIS, Elaine Sciolino, former Paris Bureau Chief of the New York Times, will share stories of her adventures along the most romantic river in the world as she discusses her beguiling new book, THE SEINE: The River That Made Paris.  She’ll discuss artists like Monet and Matisse, writers such as Hemingway and Flaubert, musicians, and filmmakers who were inspired by the river.  She’ll regale us with tales of the wonderful real life characters she met on her journey down the Seine as she charts a course through history, recounting how the river has carried Roman conquerors, Viking invaders, World War II soldiers, and the ashes of Joan of Arc and of Napoléon Bonaparte in its current.  Along the way, she reveals how the river that created Paris and shaped the lives of its inhabitants has touched her own life.
