Curious Minds: LEARNING FROM PARIS: WHAT 1,000 YEARS OF PARISIAN ART, FOOD AND REVOLUTION HAVE GIVEN US.

Mondays, September 18–October 30, 10:00 a.m. to noon
*Please note there is no class October 9.

Governor General’s Award–nominated writer, journalist and host and co-writer of Discovery World’s travel show, Paris Next Stop, Lisa Pasold guides us through Paris’s incredible history.

From the muddy beginnings of Paris to today’s sparkling cosmopolitan centre, the City of Light has helped define Western ideas about city life. We’ll discuss historical turning points—including how Parisians invented the restaurant—and talk about literary Paris with celebrities like George Sand, Gertrude Stein and Hemingway. From revolutions that have torn up the city’s streets, to how the city was destroyed and rebuilt for modern living, this an unmissable and unmistakably impactful chronicle.
