Join us Tuesday evening, June 22, at 19h30 (Central European Time) as we host author Paula Deitz for a virtual discussion of her latest book, Thibaut’s Heart: A Journey through France and Time. Link in bio!

Deitz is editor of The Hudson Review and a cultural critic, in addition to being an accomplished author.

The book follows Thibaut IV, 13th century Count of Champagne and famous chansonnier. He became King of Navarre and his heart was allegedly buried in a convent in Champagne after he died. Curious as to whether his heart was still there, Deitz decided to travel the itinerary of Thibaut’s life; the book is a memoir of her experience. A recording of 10 of Thibaut’s songs by the Ensemble Alla Francesca will be distributed with the book. #eveningswithanauthor #americanlibraryinparis #pauladeitz #thibautsheart

This conversation will be in English and will take place on Zoom. A link will be emailed to you after you purchase a copy of Les Inséparables at Albertine.

Passport Magazine, America’s #1 gay and le***an travel magazine, has selected The Fourth Courier as one of February’s best books and picked it for the “Airplane Read of the Month”! Thanks again to the American Library for helping to launch this novel. Here’s Passport Magazine's review: Timothy Jay Smith’s The Fourth Courier would be a page-turner of the first order even without its intriguing parallels to today’s fraught relationship between the U.S. and Russia. Set in Warsaw, four months after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the action takes place in a veritable Wild West of arms trafficking and other skullduggery. A gay black C.I.A. agent partners with a white F.B.I. agent to help the new Solidarity government in Poland to investigate a series of murders that turn out to be connected to uranium smuggling and a plot to build an atomic bomb. C.I.A. man Kurt Crawford leverages both aspects of his double-minority status to access secret information in the Eastern Bloc. While F.B.I. man Jay Porter is the novel’s lead character, Smith’s inclusion of a major gay protagonist is more than welcome in a smart, commercial thriller marketed to mainstream audiences. Smith is terrific in evoking the bleak but optimistic post-Cold War atmosphere of Poland and his plot twists and turns with an elegant but unpredictable precision.

Hi, I blog on renting for tenants and buying in Paris. My latest post :
I’m honored to be featured in the first post by WICE Paris, a respected writing, language and cultural program, about what’s happened with the alumni of its much acclaimed Paris Writers Workshop.
Hello All, We are a Parisian startup and are looking for a marketing intern ideally an American because we sell mostly in the US. This person needs to speak conversional French as well. Do you have any recommendation on how to find such interns please? Forums? Schools? Any recommendation would help please :) Here is the job description FYI
Looking back over the past few months, I want to thank those who helped launch my novel, The Fourth Courier, including a reading at the American Library in Paris. My book went on to be selected by Bookstr as 1 of 5 books to honor Stonewall's 50 anniversary AND 1 of the best 5 books set in Europe to be released in 2019. And finally, last week Lambda Literary published my short piece "On Writing a Gay Political Thriller". That link is attached. So all in all, a great launch so far, and I just want to thank those who helped.
the 5th Wave!!! great book! The American library in Paris has a great selection!
