Paris Is Always A Good Idea

Through an arrangement with Politics & Prose, of Washington, DC -- one of our favorite fellow independent bookstores -- Square Books is happy to inform customers of a travel opportunity of a distinctly literary flavor with three trips to Paris in either May, August, or November.

These trips will last one week and involve a mix of organized touring and free time. Days will be punctuated with evening salons involving conversation about books or anything else people want to discuss. The number of participants will be capped at 20, and the groups will be led by a bookseller and two experienced travel guides who have worked with Politics & Prose to set up the itineraries.


Past Paris trips have received very positive reviews. Travelers have appreciated the intimate group size and the more individualized, casual travel experience, free of buses but still with expert tour leaders accustomed to recommending sights off the beaten path.  The trips are priced very reasonably—from $2,850 to $3,950 (not including airfare) depending on the season and fluctuating hotel costs.


The first trip will be in May, and given how soon that is, THE SIGN-UP DEADLINE FOR THIS TRIP IS MARCH 15.


The second trip will be in August, and the third (led by Cara Black) in early November.


Each trip has its own web page outlining the details. Here are the URLs:
