Revolutions do come from the United States! I stopped by the American Library in Paris to present my new book, The Bilingual Revolution, and discuss bilingual education and the rise of dual language programs in the United States. This was my first book talk in France, and it was done in English and in an American institution!

The event was co-organized by the Association of American Women in Europe (AAWE) and it was a huge success with a packed room, lots of questions and as many answers, and the shared desire to see more bilingual programs offered in schools. Can this revolution come to France? I believe it can.

It was also the occasion to see my French friends and numerous supporters of the bilingual movement, like Senator Louis Duvernois. You can read his endorsement of my book here (in French).
