November - Burchfield Penney Virtual Book Club
Book Club at The Center is excited to announce the November’s selection: The Seine: The River that Made Paris, a vibrant, enchanting tour of the Seine from longtime New York Times foreign correspondent and bestselling author Elaine Sciolino.

Blending memoir, travelogue, and history, The Seine is a love letter to Paris and the river that determined its destiny. Master storyteller and longtime New York Times foreign correspondent Elaine Sciolino explores the Seine through its lively characters—a bargewoman, a riverbank bookseller, a houseboat dweller, a famous cinematographer—and follows it from the remote plateaus of Burgundy, through Paris, and to the sea. The Seine is a vivid, enchanting portrait of the world’s most irresistible river. It is a delightful read that can be consumed bit by bit or in one bite. It is armchair travel writing at its finest but it's clearly a look into Sciolino's heart.
“Elaine Sciolino has laid one more beautiful and amusing wreath on the altar of the City of Light.”—Edmund White, New York Times

It’s Elaine Scioloni's hope that, given all the turmoil in the world today, we can celebrate the power of a sacred river named after the ancient healing goddess Sequana. Her healing temple sits at the source of the Seine in deepest Burgundy.
