The NY Arts & Sciences Salon to Present HEMINGWAY'S PARIS with Elizabeth Kemble on 6/30

The NY Arts & Sciences Salon will present "Hemingway's Paris" with featured speaker Elizabeth Kemble, Thursday June 30 at 7PM at La Bonne Soupe, an authentic rustic French bistro in the heart of midtown Manhattan.

War-hero, raconteur, bon-vivant, gourmand, keen observer and acclaimed author, Hemingway detailed his extraordinary life in his memoir, A Moveable Feast, published posthumously in 1964. Chronicling Hemingway's time in Paris, Liz takes the audience on an interactive, virtual tour of the many places Hemingway frequented or made famous. Learn about La Closerie des Lilas, the café in which Hemingway wrote his masterpiece, The Sun Also Rises, in a coffee fueled six-week sprint. Liz reveals the famous people he associated with, such as Gertrude Stein and F. Scott Fitzgerald; and the painters Hemingway said influenced his prose style (hint: Cézanne). Elizabeth Kemble brings this story to life with anecdotes and photos.

The evening will begin with an à la carte dinner followed by the presentation. La Bonne Soupe's classic bistro menu includes crêpes (they have 8 from which to choose), quiche, onion soup (thought to be one of NYC's best recipes) and an assortment of decadent desserts.

Speaker Elizabeth Kemble, founder of Travellati Tours, was born in Paris to a German mother and an American father, and spent her early childhood in the City of Lights until her family relocated to Cincinnati and subsequently settled in the New York metropolitan area. Returning often to Europe Liz began to organize her trips around themes - seeing friends, visiting historic sites, or retracing the paths of her favorite writers. Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" inspired her to develop her ideas into a business plan which became the blueprint for her company, Travellati Tours. Liz's boutique travel company weaves together art, theater, dance and music into each travel adventure showcasing the literati, culturati, glitterati, and illuminati for the "travellati" - people who are connoisseurs of travel.

Now in its third year, the NY Arts and Science Salon is a monthly dinner/event series taking place the last Thursday of every month. Started by a small group of people with a background and interest in the arts and sciences, this growing and evolving series is a non-pompous, fun and stimulating opportunity to have a standing date to connect with each other, hear and share new ideas. Each month, gatherings sample the best of what New York's nicest and warmest restaurants have to offer, featuring presentations on a broad variety of topics, with special surprises from time to time.
