Posted: Jun. 12th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Yes, Paris has an American Library and no, I'm not making this up, but it's definitely something to check out if you haven't. Just a few days ago, Nancy Kricorian herself was there, presenting “All the Light There Was,” a work quickly gaining traction amongst book buffs and casual readers alike. But that's just one of thousands of books featured there, and one more reason to visit.

On Wed., May 15, Author Nancy Kricorian presented her new book, All the Light There Was, at the American Library in Paris. The novel is the story of an Armenian family’s struggle to survive the Nazi occupation of Paris in the 1940’s, and in researching the book Kricorian interviewed Armenians who had lived in the city through the war years.

The American Library in Paris serves nearly 2,300 members who have access to more than 120,000 books, 300 periodicals, audio-visual materials, as well as reference and research resources. The library’s evening programs, showcasing prominent authors and other public figures, attract more than 2,500 patrons and guests each year to lectures, political debates, poetry readings, slide shows, and workshops.
