A Tale of Three Cities is a literary magazine in print only, holding onto the physical printed word in ink on paper, not giving into digital editions for you I-pad or Kindle toting technology brats. The magazine features profound work by writers from â€œthe golden triangleâ€ of culture and literature, London, Berlin, and Paris. Their mediums range from poetry and short stories, to photography and drawingsâ€”it can be found at a couple of our favorite stores in Paris; Colette and Shakespeare & Company.
Every so often, A Tale of Three Cities hosts a book club. Now forget all of your preconceived notions of what a book club gathering would be. No middle aged mothers here, and no Oprah approved novels exchanged. Think moreâ€¦hot girl from your French Literature class who studies hard, and then parties hard. Keep your bookworm in your pants, as we all know thereâ€™s nothing sexier than a well read lady or gentleman.
Also, thereâ€™s no hot tea and finger sandwichesâ€”Most book club goers opt for a martini or mojito, although there was a birthday cake to celebrate their one year anniversary. Happy Birthday! And thank you for the fabulous party set in such opulent scenery as Le Carmen. So Great Gatsby; got the literary juices flowing.
