Author Rosecrans Baldwin discusses Paris, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down with blogger Jason Diamond of Vol. 1 Brooklyn
Introduction by Ron Hogan of Beatrice.com
Our ongoing Blogger/Author Pairings series features conversations between authors and bloggers who share territories, passions, and preoccupations. Rosecrans Baldwin, editor of The Morning News and author of the novel You Lost Me There, chronicles the unexpected reality of expatriate life in his new memoir Paris, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down. Baldwin moved his family to Paris for a copywriting job and soon learned that it’s not all croissants and cathedrals; the oddities of French office life, the omnipresence of American culture, and his own inability to speak French cause Baldwin to lose his dream of Paris but find a whole new reality to fall in love with. Baldwin will discuss the book with fellow internet personality Jason Diamond, the founder of influential literary blog Vol. 1 Brooklyn and New York Deputy Editor of Flavorpill. The event will be introduced by series curator Ron Hogan, creator of the seminal literary blog Beatrice.com.
