Books for the Grounded Traveler: "We'll Always Have Paris..." Soirée

An evening with Wellesley Books to discuss the City of Light and some books inspired by it. 

The pandemic scuppered many long-awaited travel plans, which is why Wellesley Books hand-picked some Paris-themed books that will transport you across the Atlantic in your imagination. You’ll practically be smelling the croissants as you lose yourself in these stellar books: The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, Little by Edward Carey, Vintage 1954 by Antoine Laurain, The Godmother by Hannelore Cayre, and The Only Street in Paris by Elaine Sciolino.

And to cap off this literary expedition, we'd like to invite you to a special online soirée in which we'll discuss the books and chat about all things Parisian! The event will take place on February 25th through Zoom. All you have to do is buy a $5 ticket using the Eventbrite form above (the form may take a moment to load). After your ticket order, you'll receive a $5 discount that can be used on the purchase of one of our "We'll Always Have Paris" books. Just choose the one you want below, add it to your cart, and apply the coupon code at checkout.  

For the real Paris enthusiast, you'll want to buy the Gift Basket, which includes all five books PLUS a selection of items with a Parisian flare from our gift department. Dare we say it might be the perfect Valentine's gift for that special readerly somebody? If you would like to ship this gift basket, please leave the address in the "comments" section of your order.

If you wish to avoid online processing fees, you can place your order by telephone at 781-431-1160. 

*Note: If you select store/curbside pickup, please wait to pick up your items until you receive an email from us saying your order is ready.*
