A New Look At Jean-Paul Sartre And Simone de Beauvoir:

Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir are the Bonny and Clyde of Philosophy.
They are both iconic Parisians who used to hang out in the mythical Café de Flore in Saint-Germain des Prés.

Jean-Paul Sartre invented Existentialism and Simone de Beauvoir was one of the inventors of modern feminism.
But behind the legends, were two human beings whose secrets and complexities were discovered after their deaths.

During their a 50 year union, they each had many affairs and laisons, which they recounted to each other daily, in detail, in cafés. Some see their relationships as liberated. Others see them as depraved. How did they each feel about these relationships? How did these relationships influence their work and legacies?

When such brilliant people fall in love, it makes for a fascinating love story.

Edith de Belleville is a tour guide in Paris and organizes guided visits related to great moments in French history, particularly pertaining to French women. She is also a lawyer and a certified French teacher to foreigners. She is prolific and has written many articles and recently did a radio program with an Australian journalist about Simone de Beauvoir

“My (Part-Time) Paris Life:” The UPS and DOWNS Of Paris Expat Life.”
Her Fun And Touching Memoire.

Our Special Guest Is:

Lisa Anselmo
Author, Creative Director, Blogger

Paris As The Answer:

Lisa Anselmo wrapped her entire life around her mother, a strong woman who was a defining force in Lisa’s life―maybe too defining.

When her mother dies from breast cancer, Lisa realizes she hadn’t built a life of her own and struggles to find her purpose.

Who is she without her mother―and her mother’s expectations?

Desperate for answers, she turns to her favorite city―Paris―and impulsively buys a small apartment, refusing to play it safe for the first time.

What starts out as an act of survival sets Lisa on a course that reshapes her life in ways she never could have imagined. Suddenly, she’s living like a local in a city she thought she knew, but her high school French, while fine for buying bread at the corner boulangerie, goes only so far when Paris gives her a strong dose of real life.

From dating to homeownership in a foreign country, Lisa quickly learns it’s not all picnics on the Seine, and starts to doubt herself―and her love of the city.

But she came to Paris to be happy, and she can’t give up now. Isn’t happiness worth fighting for?

In the vein of Eat, Pray, Love and Wild, My (Part-Time) Paris Life a story is for anyone who’s ever felt lost or hopeless, but still dreams of something more.

This candid memoir explores one woman’s search for peace and meaning, and how the ups and downs of expat life in Paris taught her to let go of fear, find self-worth, and create real, lasting happiness in the City of Light

“Ernest Hemingway And His “Lost Generation”.

Our Special Guest Is Filmmaker. Writer,  David Burke.

Tom McKenzie

Bassist
(Jazz. Standards. Pop)

It’s The 100th anniversary of “The Lost Generation”. Many of us present day Paris Expats are their legacy.

Who Was The “Lost Generation”?

The “Lost Generation” was the generation that came of age during World War I. The term was popularized by Ernest Hemingway, who used it as one of two contrasting epigraphs for his novel, The Sun Also Rises. In that volume Hemingway credits the phrase to Gertrude Stein, who was then his mentor and patron. This generation included artists and writers who came of age during the war such as F. Scott Fitzgerald,[1] T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Sherwood Anderson, John Dos Passos, John Steinbeck, William Faulkner, Djuna Barnes, Glenway Wescott, Waldo Peirce, Isadora Duncan, Abraham Walkowitz, Ezra Pound, Alan Seeger, Henry Miller, Aldous Huxley, Malcolm Cowley, Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Erich Maria Remarque and the composers Sergei Prokofiev, Paul Hindemith, George Gershwin, and Aaron Copland.

Gertrude Stein heard the phrase from a garage owner who serviced Stein’s car. When a young mechanic failed to repair the car quickly enough, the garage owner shouted at the boy, “You are all a “génération perdue.[2]:29 Stein, in telling Hemingway the story, added, “That is what you are. That’s what you all are … all of you young people who served in the war. You are a lost generation.”[2]:29 [3]

Lost means not vanished but disoriented, wandering, directionless—a recognition that there was great confusion and aimlessness among the war’s survivors in the early post-war years.’[4]

Ernest Hemingway And His “Lost Generation:”

The Sun Also Rises (The quintessential novel of the Lost Generation) is a 1926 novel written by American author Ernest Hemingway about a group of American and British expatriates who travel from Paris to the Festival of San Fermín in Pamplona to watch the running of the bulls and the bullfights.

Please visit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_Generation

  Says David Burke:

“The key figures in this talk at the Paris Soirées are the same as in the literary walk I do in Montparnasse*:  Hemingway and the writers Sherwood Anderson, Gertrude Stein, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, who all helped young Hem enormously, his first wife Hadley, and certain cronies in Montparnasse who asked if they could go to the Pamplona bullfights with him.

What came out of that was The Sun Also Rises — much to the regret of the cronies when it came out!  We see how that developed.  But there’s a less-known backstory.  After Hemingway completed his manuscript of the book he went to no end to get his book to the publisher he wanted, but there was a block (I’ll tell you what) and to make it work he betrayed his first benefactor Sherwood Anderson — the man who had insisted that the young man go to Paris!  His early mentor Gertrude Stein was furious.  Sharp literary exchanges came between the two.  The endgame continued to Hemingway’s death with A Moveable Feast. You will see. “

“THIS LUSCIOUS LIFE”

Our Special Guest Is Kelley Black

Acclaimed Author

Executive Life Coach, Speaker, NAAM Yoga Teacher.

 

Says Kelley Black:

This book is about living a luscious life. It’s my heartfelt wish for every reader to live one. And since there is no recipe for simply knowing, no how-to-method for claiming personal power, no power-through technique for being receptive . . .

I decided to write from my life experience.

This life has cracked me open through joy and suffering. I can honestly say that it’s been an odyssey of experiences both exhilarating in their happiness and excruciating in their pain.

Somehow, its deep polarities have arrived in equal measure.
I’ve been sparked by a profound awe for something unseen, something more than the external coincidence of my time alive.
I know that for every bit of pain, I’ve also experienced the ecstasy of pleasure and pure joy.

I also know that all of it, somehow,
has worked in my favor to move me to a deeper connection
and expression of my true self. My wish in writing this book is to give as I’ve received.

Gratitude. Forgiveness. Love. These are our birthright.
This book is my attempt at giving back to the divine source in a world that has held me up even as I’ve fallen.
It is my love letter to life.

David Evans

American Blues Star, Scholar And Author
“American Doctor of the Blues”: Music. Experiences.

David Evans has been a performer (blues vocal and guitar) since the 1960s. He has played at concerts and festivals throughout the United States and toured over fifty times as a solo performer and/or accompanist in twenty-two countries of Europe, South America, and Africa.

David has performed and/or recorded with Alan Wilson (later of Canned Heat), Van Zula Hunt, Hammie Nixon, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Johnny Shines, and Robert Belfour.

In Memphis and the Mid-South he performs with the Last Chance Jug Band and recorded a CD, Shake That Thing, with them in 1997. He also recorded the solo CDs Match Box Blues in 2002, Needy Time in 2007, Live at “Alte Post” in 2012, and Under the Yam Yam Tree in 2013.

Most of his style and repertoire were learned from artists with whom he has been associated through fieldwork and touring.

Evans has produced over fifty LP’s and CD’s of field and studio recordings and has written liner and booklet notes for over eighty others.

In 2003 he received a Grammy Award for “Best Album Notes.” He is also the editor for the “American Made Music” series of books for the University Press of Mississippi and the “Deep River of Song” series of CD’s for Rounder Records of field recordings of African American folk music by John and Alan Lomax.

Evans has lectured throughout the United States and in thirteen foreign countries. He has been a consultant for a number of museums, exhibits, programs, festivals, radio, television, film, and video productions.

 

David Evans is the author of Tommy Johnson (London: Studio Vista, 1971), a study of the life and music of a folk blues singer, and Big Road Blues: Tradition and Creativity in the Folk Blues (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1982; paperback reprint, 1987), both based upon his fieldwork.

More recently, he has authored (with John Minton) “The Coon in the Box”: A Global Folktale in African-American Tradition (Helsinki: Academia Scientiarum Fennica, 2001) and The NPR Curious Listener’s Guide to Blues (New York: Perigee, 2005), and edited Ramblin’ on My Mind: New Perspectives on the Blues (Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 2008).

Evans has also written many journal articles and book chapters on various aspects of blues, African American folk music, and musical instruments, including major biographical studies of Bukka White, Charley Patton, and Blind Willie McTell. He has also contributed many entries to encyclopedias, dictionaries, and handbooks, including

The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians
, Encyclopedia of Southern Culture, International Dictionary of Black Composers, Encyclopedia of American Folklore, Handbook of American Folklore, The Blackwell Guide to Blues Records, American National Biography, Black Women in America, The Blues: A Bibliographical Guide, Garland Encyclopedia of World Music, American Musical Traditions, The Cambridge Companion to Blues and Gospel Music, Encyclopedia of Popular Music of the World, and Encyclopedia of African American Folklore.
As a student of Classical languages at Harvard University (1961-65), Evans became interested in American folk music by listening to recordings and hearing traditional performers at coffee houses and concerts. He soon began learning guitar and performing in coffee houses. His interest in folk music gravitated toward blues and African American folk music, and he began interviewing folk blues performers who came through Cambridge on tours.

After graduation from Harvard, Evans enrolled in the Folklore and Mythology graduate program at the University of California, Los Angeles, receiving the M.A. degree in 1967 and the Ph.D. in 1976. Beginning in 1965, he did fieldwork in southern states for periods of several weeks at a time over the next dozen years, collecting hundreds of hours of recordings and interviews that have resulted in many publications and record albums of blues and other types of African American folk music.
He has also compiled over the years a record collection of 78’s, 45’s, LP’s, and CD’s of folk, popular, and ethnic music that comprises over thirty thousand items.
Evans began teaching in the Anthropology Department at California State University, Fullerton, in 1969. In 1978 he joined the faculty at Memphis State University (now The University of Memphis) and has since then been Professor of Music there.   He received a First Tennessee professorship for 2006-2009 and the Willard R. Sparks Eminent Faculty Award in 2007.  In 2011 he was a Fulbright Senior Specialist at Bahir Dar University in Ethiopia.
David Evans will have books and recordings available for purchase.
