The Librarian's Choice: September's selection

Dear all,

don't feel chagrined summer is early over and enjoy uplifting and witty readings you can find in the BDX-USA library: a woman who finally finds herself during summer vacation, the witty account of England at the turn of the century and a collection of funny book reviews by Nick Hornby.

Thursday, September 1st: Potluck

Let's start the year with good food and good wine.

If your last name starts with a letter between A and F, please bring some sweet treats.

If your last name starts with a letter between G and Z, please bring side dishes such as veggies or salads.

As for drinks, of course red wines are always welcome, and for tonight please bring white wine, cider or a soft drinks.



Bastille Day 2016

After we dined on Irish loaf and almond cake from the Toque Cuivrée and homemade apricot clafoutis in the cozy main room of BDX-USA (displaying more French flags for the occasion) straight to the quays to watch the wonderful firework which, I heard an American from NYC tell it, is far more better than the 4th of July's Macy firework.
Well, the one of Bordeaux is clearly among the most gorgeous!
