Event description

Description

Venez ici! Pull up a chair and sip an aperitif with author L. John Harris who discusses his favorite French cafés and the rituals of café culture in Paris!

L. John Harris channels the historic flâneur with his witty café French "lessons" and whimsical illustrations taken from his Paris café journals. While Café French guides fellow Francophiles on a journey into the cultural and linguistic codes of Paris café culture, the author--with a dash of Dada--chronicles his own discoveries: the cafés he inhabits, the language he struggles to learn, the food he eats and the dreams he pursues in the city he loves. Café French is a delightful book that will instruct and amuse Paris newcomers and veterans alike--all who yearn for a taste of the flâneur's creative café lifestyle.

L. John Harris writes about food and art, sketches in Paris cafés and operates the non-profit Harris Guitar Foundation in collaboration with the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. His previous books include The Book of Garlic and Foodoodles: From the Museum of Culinary History, won a Bay Area Independent Publisher's Association (BAIPA) award for Best Graphic Memoir. He is currently writing a book about the history of Berkeley's "gourmet ghetto."
