English Books Paris: New Arrivals at Bill & Rosa’s Book Room

English Books Paris? Each week in the Book Room online, we recommend newly published English books we love. We also present some in French or bilingual, for kids or adults, fiction or non. Many are books about France of course, but there are many different subjects.

CONFUSION (LA SAGA DES CAZALET III) Mars 1942. Polly et Clary, les deux cousines encore enfants dans Étés anglais et qui, adolescentes, avaient la part belle dans À rude épreuve, ont aujourd’hui dix-sept ans et n’aspirent qu’à une chose: échapper à l’étau familial en quittant Home Place pour Londres. Polly est encore sous le choc du décès de sa mère, Sybil, qui a succombé au cancer qui la rongeait. Clary, dont le père Rupert n’a plus donné signe de vie depuis le mot apporté par un soldat français, est sur le point de perdre espoir. Au chagrin des deux héroïnes s’ajoute la frustration face au silence borné du clan Cazalet: les adultes se refusent à parler des choses graves, et continuent de …

Virtual visit: Black & White: an aesthetic of photography

The Black & White exhibition has been hung, everything is on the walls, but the public is kept at bay.

After three (!) attempts to open the exhibition to the public "Black & White: an aesthetic of photography Collection of the National Library of France", the Rmn - Grand Palais has innovated and put virtual tours online until 18 June. Their hope is that the public will enjoy the exhibition anyway, but FUSAC reporter Judith Bluysen was not convinced.

The Noir & Blanc : une esthétique de la photographie exhibition presents black and white masterpieces from the photographic collections of the National Library of France (BnF), exceptionally brought together for the occasion.

Made in France – Innovative, ecological

Laëtitia Van de Walle created Lamazuna already way back in 2010, well in advance of the current Made in France wave. It all started with the idea of being a better consumer and finding ways to consume better. She decided to stop using five disposable cotton pads and a toner to cleanse her face every day. She wanted to use ultra-soft microfibre cleansing wipes that could be reused hundreds of times. A great idea but ambitious. She then shared it with friends who all loved the idea!

Despite being a Made in France product, the name obviously does not sound French. But what is its origin? It is a Georgian name! “Lamazuna” means “pretty young woman” in Georgian.

Lamazuna currently has 47 full-time employees, who work together as a team and believe in the values and ethics of the brand.
