talks about learning French

Last month, France Book Tours was honored to organize a virtual book tour for Samantha Vérant and her amazing memoir: Seven Letters from Paris.

Today, we just want to mention to our readers always eager to hear from France that Samantha has just been interviewed by Laurel Zuckerman:
on Laurel Zucherman’s Paris Weblog, she, as well as William Alexander, talks about learning French.
I highly recommend this wonderful interview.

And in case you have not read yet Samantha’s memoir, maybe it’s time to add it to your list for Santa:

SYNOPSIS

Twenty years, seven letters, and one long-lost love of a lifetime

At age 40, Samantha Vérant’s life is falling apart-she’s jobless, in debt, and feeling stuck… until she stumbles upon seven old love letters from Jean-Luc, the sexy Frenchman she’d met in Paris when she was 19. With a quick Google search, she finds him, and both are quick to realize that the passion they felt 20 years prior hasn’t faded with time and distance.

Samantha knows that jetting off to France to reconnect with a man that she only knew for one sun-drenched, passion-filled day is crazy-but it’s the kind of crazy she’s been waiting for her whole life. [provided by the publisher]

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Samantha VérantSamantha Vérant is a travel addict,
a self-professed oenophile,
and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, French chef.
Over the years, she’s visited many different countries,
lived in many places, and worked many jobs
— always on the search for the one thing that truly excited her.
Then, one day, she found everything she’s been looking for:
a passion for the written word and true love.
Writing not only enabled her to open her heart, it led her to southwestern France,
where she’s now married to a sexy French rocket scientist she met in 1989, but ignored for 20 years.

France Book Tours 2013

2013 has been a great year for France Book Tours, its authors and its reviewers!

Here is the year through some graphs and stats.

23 books have been presented in 2013.
I notice a nice balance in genre, but women writers are definitely more present here.
At the time where many lament of the scarcity of books translated from the French available in the US, it is nice to see that we didn’t do too bad!
