“Picnic in Provence” Author Signs at Carpe Vino
New York Times best-selling author Elizabeth Bard will sign and read from her latest book, “Picnic in Provence,” in an event at Carpe Vino on Bastille Day, July 14, from 6 to 8 p.m. The event is free and no reservations are required.
This is Bard’s second book published by Little, Brown and Company. After moving from New York to Paris, the writer met a young Frenchman, got married and during a short trip to the Provençal foothill town of Cereste, ended up purchasing a home shortly before for the birth of her son. Her engaging story is about how a lifelong New Yorker moves to a new country and then doubles down by learning how to live and make a living far from any metropolis. This memoir explores her journey in rehabbing an historic home, mastering the French language and assimilating into a difficult culture made easier by her love of wholesome food and her joy found in cooking. Each chapter of the book ends with a Provençal recipe.
