Our FHS Board Member, Dena Kaye has suggested that I send to you each month some suggestions of places, restaurants, shops, or books that you might be interested in as fellow Francophiles.
As I am so lucky to be in Paris often throughout the year, I thought that indeed it might be fun to share some recent, or time-treasured places or discoveries with you. Our President, Denis de Kergorlay, suggested that I entitle this "Les Coups de Coeur de Libba," and so here it is! As I am neither a restaurant reviewer, an art expert, or a literary critic, I am simply going to give you a diary list of what has given me great pleasure in the City of Lights that is so bien aimée by all of us.
Happy exploring, Libba Stribling, Chairman, FHS
French Heritage Society is dedicated to protecting the French architectural legacy both in France and the United States with particular emphasis on raising funds for preservation and education.
The society fosters long-established French-American relationships through cultural exchanges as it strives to ensure that the treasures of our shared heritage will survive to inspire future generations.
Its thirteen chapters in the US and one in Paris have supported the restoration of nearly 500 buildings and gardens since 1982. French Heritage Society also organizes unique student internship opportunities in both countries and offers enriching cultural trips in France and the US for its members.
