Local Author Meg Westley’s Memoir Transports Readers to 1963 Paris
The world is in seclusion; people are bored and fed up, wishing they could escape, travel, be entertained. The perfect antidote? Meg Westley‘s Milk with Wine, the story of the year she lived in Paris with her family at age eight.
Plunged into a strict Parisian school where no one spoke English, Westley was treated like the village idiot. She also got to know old world Paris, before it became overrun with tourists and big box stores: a city of strange odours, tiny shops, fierce gendarmes, quaint and sometimes infuriating customs.
