libraries and cultural classrooms...
other good meeting places: The frequent Tuesday night and
Sunday afternoon readings at the woman-owned Village Voice
Bookstore (6, rue Princesse on Paris's Left Bank) which
attracts a lot of Paris-based Americans. Call to see if there
is a reading when you are in Paris. Tel. 01 46 33 36 47.
Don't forget Shakespeare
and Co. (37 rue de la Bucherie 75005) where it's hard
not to fall over another person who is trying to find a specific
book (which can be a challenge in this charming but cluttered
Left Bank librairie). For bookworms The American Library
(10, rue du General Camou) is another institution worth checking
WICE is a popular non-profit
organization which offers excellent and diverse activities.

although many of their participants are French. To enroll
