Murder By The Book
Reading, Book Signing and Reception
At The Alliance Française
Continuing exhibition, Paris Intime, an exhibition of photographs by Susan Backes, who says "As an avid street photographer what particularly interests me are the quotidian activities in a large city. Paris lends itself to a more intimate view with its inherent cinematic backdrops and a certain air de romance."
