Aux États-Unis, on fait aussi la révolution ! De passage en France, j’ai pu présenter mon nouveau livre, La Révolution bilingue, à l’American Library in Paris. L’occasion de parler d’éducation bilingue et du développement constant des filières bilingues dans les écoles aux États-Unis. C’était ma première rencontre et dédicace en France, à Paris, en langue anglaise et, qui plus est, dans une institution américaine !

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!
I was thrilled to take part in both NYC’s Bilingual Fair and the Ich Bin Expat Fair today. The first event was hosted by French Morning and Fordham University and gathered hundreds of exhibitors and participants from various linguistic communities. The second event was hosted CityKinder, a New York-based group, and offered a multitude of opportunities to meet German businesses, schools, and community organizations. I was able to take part in several talks on bilingual education and share insights on the Bilingual Revolution while meeting with parents and educators from the Tri-State and beyond who shared the same desire to see more dual language programs open in schools everywhere.
I was interviewed by Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, author and MomsRising Executive Director, for her radio show Breaking Through. This hour-long talk show is produced by WeAct Radio and airs on WPWC 1480AM in Washington, DC, as well as in a podcast online at WeActRadio.com and MomsRising.org. Thanks for the invitation!
