3–9 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for a reading with author Oliver Gee and illustrator Lina Nordin Gee as they read their new picture book Kylie the Crocodile in Paris. Following the reading, Lina will show participants how to draw a crocodile and then the pair will answer questions about what inspired this “absolutely true story.”

This live, interactive virtual event will be hosted on Zoom. We will keep microphones muted during the reading part and art demonstration, after which participants will be encouraged to turn on their microphones and ask questions during the Q&A part of the event. Children will also be able to communicate with Oliver and Lina via chat throughout the event.

"ASTOR PIAZZOLLA - LIBERTAD - L'ETONNANT VOYAGE D'UN HOMME LIBRE" by Sébastien Authemayou & Marielle Gars (Editions Parole, 2020)
In honor of the centenary of his birth, this first-ever French-language biography + CD celebrates the life and work of Astor Piazzola, the Argentinian-born New Yorker who revolutionized tango by infusing elements of jazz and classicial music. 🎵🎶
Initially shunned by traditionalists, he was eventually revered globally as a "genre-bending genius who had done for the tango something like what Picasso did for modern art." (L.A. Times)
The authors, Sébastien Authemayou & Marielle Gars, are internationally renowned tango musicians known as the group Duo Intermezzo. Their 528-page opus includes a biography that reads like a novel, rare and previously unpublished photographs and a 75-minute CD contains sound archives as well as Duo Intermezzo original tracks.
Available for a limited time for $49.99 thanks to generous support from the publisher (normally $65.99!).

With more than 50 million books sold, translated into 49 languages, Marc Levy is the most widely read French author in the world.

We can't wait to hear him present his new novel, C’est arrivé la Nuit, the first volume of his new "Neuf" trilogy. The story follows nine computer hackers who are on a mission to take down the powerful villains of modern society. Think fake news, right-wing extremists, attacks on democracy. Sound a little too close to home? Voilà, the mark of a writer completely in sync with readers during these troubling times. Don't miss out!

We are thrilled to be partnering with "Un Endroit ou Aller" for this event! In French.
