Poetry and Art intermingle at the Société des Poètes Français
It is comforting to live in a city where 'societies' still exist to promote literature, poetry and the visual arts under one roof so that they can be experienced together. The Société des Poètes Français can be found in the 6th arrondissement of Paris at 16, rue Monsieur Le Prince not far from Jardin du Luxembourg and le Senat. I was recently introduced to the Société by a friend who was exhibiting her paintings along with several other artists.
I always encourage visitors to Paris to look beyond the monuments and museums to feel the real pulse of the city and to discover a vibrant creative pulse that looks at life in such a different manner from that found in the United States. This is just one small example. Check out their website for upcoming events to include poetry and book readings in addition to art expositions.
