A Celebratory Pique-nique on the Champs de Mars!
Closing picnic to share reflections on the series of events
Champs de Mars!
Tuesday, June 8, 1:00 – 3:00 pm, with Carolee Mills and Margo De Ley
A time to relax and enjoy! To share the knowledge we’ve acquired! To exchange thoughts on the Spring series! And to congratulate the founder of”‘Les Historiennes!”
Did you wish after the Fall series of events that we, as participants, could have gathered to exchange thoughts on what was discovered and most enjoyed? Did you wish to meet and get to know some of the faces (or hidden ones) on your Zoom screen? As the answer is “Yes!” join other Historiennes in a celebratory end-of-semester pique-nique planned with those very purposes in mind!
We will fittingly meet in the gardens of the Champs de Mars, the site of the 1889 World Exposition, near the puppet theater on the 7th arrondissement side of the gardens. Bring lunch and a beverage for yourself and/or to share, a picnic blanket, a comfy outfit, and, hopefully, your sunglasses! A rain date will be chosen, and those registered will be notified in case of inclement weather.
Place: Champs de Mars–Take the Rue de Belgrade into the garden, to the Monuments des Droits Humains. From there take the path towards the Eiffel Tower. You’ll find us on the way, near the Théâtre Guignol.
Limited to 18 participants. Cost: Your picnic
