I should have posted this earlier but there are still several days yet.

I hope you'll have good weather should you decide to attend. Maybe dine at
The Fournaisse made famous by Renoir by his painting, "the Luncheon."

9-19 March 2006
Made famous by the Impressionists, the pretty Seine island of Chatou was immortalised by Renoir. Twice a year it plays host to a grand antique fair named La Foire au Jambon (Ham Fair), where some 400 antique dealers display their wares alongside a gourmet food fair.

Wrap up warmly, or alternatively be sure to burn some calories feasting here and there on Alsatian ham, foie gras from south-western France and Savoyard cheeses, while browsing aisle after aisle of stalls. The opening days are only for professionals so you won't have missed much. It takes about 15 minutes from Paris on the RER.

You had to tell me about an antique fair didn't you?!?! My mother is getting married to an antiques dealer and I've already been charged with missions.

And OH The Fournaisse!

This trip is going to be awesome!

I'm reading from Murder in Montmartre in Paris and would love to see anyone who's in Paris on March 20th at Shakespeare and Co 7pm or on March 23 at Red Wheelbarrow Bookstore in the Marais on rue Saint Paul,

On her website, you can see her US schedule.
I'll see her in Cambridge in April
