OLLI: The Seine: The River That Made Paris, with Elaine Sciolino

October 25 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

This program is intended for ages 13 and up.

In the spring of 1978 as a young journalist in Paris, Elaine Sciolino was seduced by a river. In The Seine, she tells the story of that river through its rich history and lively characters—a bargewoman, a riverbank bookseller, a houseboat dweller, a famous cameraman known for capturing the river’s light. She patrols with river police, rows with a restorer of antique boats, discovers a champagne vineyard, and even dares to swim in the Seine.

Elaine Sciolino is a contributing writer and former Paris bureau chief for The New York Times, based in France since 2002.
