Sasha Ariel Alston’s Young Adult Book, “Sasha Tech Saavy Loves To Code.” Tommie McKenzie. Bass: Jazz. Pop. Blues.

Tracy Chiles McGhee Winner of the 2016 Fauset Book Award in the Category of First Fiction

Set in Arkansas in 1957,  the complexities of identity, yearnings for love and acceptance, and racial tension are all unmasked in the riveting literary drama, Melting the Blues, by debut author Tracy Chiles McGhee.

Augustus Lee Rivers, a farmer and bluesman, has two obsessions:  his relationship with the Duncan family and his desire to leave small town Chinaberry to become a musician in Chicago. When his plans are prevented by a devastating betrayal, Augustus is driven into the belly of the blues where he must reckon with his past if he is to move forward. This intriguing, multi-layered historical tale beckons readers down a red dirt country road to bear witness to an unforgettable time, place, and people.

A brave, musical story rich with Southern history.” Kirkus Reviews

Tracy Chiles McGhee is an award-winning, multi-genre writer and the author of the much acclaimed novel, “Melting the Blues,.” which has received numerous awards.

She is the Co-Founder of the Literacy Empowerment Action Project. In addition, she is an Ambassador for the National Museum of African-American History and Culture. McGhee graduated from Catholic University Law School and Georgetown University and currently lives in Washington, DC. Her webpage is tracychilesmcghee.us.

Despite this, she decides to give it a chance and convinces her best friends Gabby Reyes and Ashley Webster, to attend the coding camp with her. Sasha’s mom, a Software Developer, gives her a unique formula to help her remember how to code but will it be enough to get her through a challenging first day of camp with bugs everywhere, computing errors, that is.

Says Tom about his instrument:

“La Contrebasse.  La Grand-mère.  String bass.  Bass fiddle.  Double bass.  Bull bass.  Bass viol.

She is called by many names and her function in any musical ensemble is to, “basically”, lay down the groove: provide the bottom (base) of the harmony and rhythm.

But, her melodic range is broad, and she can sing you to tears as well as make you feel that thump in your rump.”

Tom McKenzie is originally from New York and has had an international career for 30 plus years playing in a wide variety of venues: churches, theatres, concerts, festivals, recording studios.

He has also been a street musician. He has worked in the US, Europe Africa and the Caribbean.

SUNDAY 10 DECEMBER 2017

“HOPE SHINES.” Michael Stromme And His Business Supporting Orphans In Rwanda.

Our Special Guest Is:
Michael Stromme
Social Entrepreneur. American Expat In Rwanda

Hope Shines:

Hope Shines is an organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) through educational and health and hygiene programs. Michael has been affiliated with the group in Rwanda. He is now developing a business aiding orphans there.Visit http://hopeshines.org/who-we-are/

In New York, Michael was “yearning for something more meaningful in my life, and felt called to be somewhere far and exotic, like the south of India.  It was then that I met the founder of Hope Shines” who told him about the volunteer summer camp program. After that experience, ” I knew my life’s trajectory had just flipped a 180.”

“Hope Shines has a new greenhouse outside Kigali where we’re growing red peppers and soon butternut squash to sell at market and hotels.  I’ve been working on a social entrepreneurship of handmade soap which will be targeted to boutique hotels.  These both will help bring revenue streams to the organization, helping to sustain it.  The kids themselves have been learning traditional Rwandan dance, and have gotten so good that they’ve performed at a couple weddings.  They will continue to perform in public, and hopefully the money earned from these events will eventually pay for their school fees.” 

Living In Rwanda (Kagali). Starting A Business To Support Orphans And Being An Expat.

It was a natural organic progression after he had the idea of starting a soap business in Rwanda. Michael originally intended to start the business in NY, with proceeds going to Hope Shines, and then bring it to Rwanda.” Earlier this year , “I knew I had to go to Rwanda to start the business and bring that model back to NY. I knew that ultimately I wanted to be living in Rwanda, as I’d always loved it and the people were so warm and welcoming, not to mention many friends I’d made over the years. “ 

Rwanda is very welcoming to visitors.  There’s a big expat community, which I’m not so much involved with.  They’re here for their jobs, mostly, and will hang out at the expensive restaurants and night clubs.  But people on the street in my area are always friendly, and adults and children alike will greet me with a Hello or Bonjour. 

The political climate is good.  The president just got voted into an historic 3rd term because he had saved the country during the genocide, and people love him here.  He’s not only kept the country safe and peaceful, but it’s now known for its development and progress.  There’s so much infrastructure improvements, and new buildings and hotels are going up all over.  There’s also a beautiful new convention center and shopping malls.  So there are many improvements, yet still so much poverty.” 

About Michael Stromme:

Michael has been an actor, teacher, and massage therapist in Los Angeles, Rome, Paris, and New York.  Having been moved and inspired by a strong purpose and calling in Rwanda, he now finds himself in the world of philanthropy and social entrepreneurship, supporting a group of orphans through an organization for which he volunteers and had served on its board.  That support has led him to start a handmade soap business in Rwanda, with proceeds supporting the organization and the children

Sunday 5 October 2017 at 19h15

(Paris Expat Soirée Dinner. Meet New People)
90+ Ways You Know You’re Becoming French”

(with contributions by FUSAC co-owner Lisa Vanden Bos and beautiful illustrations by Hungarian artist Judit Halasz).
Our Special Guests Are:

Shari Leslie Segall

Author and Founding Director of “Foreign Affairs”

Tom McKenzie
Bassist
Jazz, Pop

SAYS SHARI:

“The French say that foreigners can never truly “become” French–no matter what legal status is inscribed upon what identity papers they carry around in

their France-based wallets. Nor might newly minted citizens or official residents wish to swap their own cultural manners and mentalities for those of the local

waiter who serves them their morning café au lait et croissant (to say nothing of totally being able to). But if you’re here long enough, your adaptation mirrors

those Escher drawings where columns of black geese or fish on the left fly or swim straight across the page, migrating and mutating by imperceptible degrees,

melting into and finally becoming their white counterparts on the right. To a greater or lesser degree, whether you expected to or not, one day you realize that

you’re crossing to the other side. How do you know that you’ve arrived?

We’re going to have fun with this one!


Shari Leslie Segall will come with her very popular (already in its third printing) little book,
90+ Ways You Know You’re Becoming French” (with

contributions by FUSAC co-owner Lisa Vanden Bos and beautiful illustrations by Hungarian artist Judit Halasz). Participants will call out a number. Shari will

turn to that “way of becoming French” in the book and read it. Participants will then reflect upon and discuss how “French” they have (or haven’t) become on

this particular point. (There have already been on-line “competitions” among readers as to how many becoming-French criteria they have met.)

Books will be available for signing and purchase (with two euros off the selling price for Paris Soirées participants).


Shari Leslie Segall, in Paris since 1985 and author of France-themed books and articles, has taught English and cross-cultural communication at the

prestigious Institut des Etudes Politiques (Sciences Po) and teaches at the French Military Academy. She is the founding director of Foreign Affairs, which

provides linguistic and cross-cultural training and creates English-language documents for executives.

Address: At a trendy and fun venue – a French bistro in the Marais –  just behind BHV. at the metro Hotel de Ville (ligne 1).

GREAT FRENCH BISTRO FOOD. We’ll confirm the exact address details with the reservation!

It’s €25.00 (EXACT CHANGE) for a fun dinner. NEW GREAT FORMULA: Dinner is 2 wonderful courses and includes a glass of wine.
All additional beverages must be ordered from and paid for directly to the bistro.

IF YOU BRING 5 PEOPLE, YOU CAN COME FOR FREE!

We pass the hat for Tommie McKenzie.

A fun dinner, a great topic, meeting and networking with, fun, new international people.
