Transatlantic Forum with Alex Gambal – An American in Burgundy


Join us at Joie de Vivre, New York’s newest cultural gem, for an enchanting evening that bridges the Atlantic with “An American in Burgundy.” This unique event, hosted by the French-American Foundation, promises an immersive journey into the heart of French culture, literature, and the timeless allure of Burgundy’s vineyards.

The evening will feature an intimate reading by Alex Gambal, the acclaimed author of “Climbing the Vines of Burgundy.” Through Gambal’s narrative, attendees will embark on a literary expedition to the famed vineyards of Burgundy, exploring the rich tapestry of its terroir, traditions, and the universal language of wine. Following the reading, engage in spirited discussions, indulge in a curated selection of wines and cheeses, and revel in the shared joy of cultural discovery.

“An American in Burgundy” is an invitation to transcend borders and celebrate the stories that unite us. Whether you’re a connoisseur of fine wines, a lover of literature, or simply in search of an evening infused with cultural enrichment, this event promises an unforgettable experience.

Reserve your spot for an evening where literature meets the vineyard, and where every sip and page turn is a toast to the enduring friendship between France and America.

We look forward to welcoming you to Joie de Vivre for an evening that promises to be as informative as it is delightful. Seats are limited, so ensure your place at this celebration of Franco-American cultural exchange.
