Paris Beyond the Postcard with Cole Stangler - AUP Sponsored event

The American Library in Paris | 10 rue du Général Camou | 75007 Paris
Wednesday, September 27, 2023 - 19:30 to 20:30

Where is the ‘real’ Paris? In popular imagination, Paris has streets lined with stylish cafés and fashion boutiques. In new book Paris is Not Dead: Surviving Hypergentrification in the City of Light, Cole Stangler combines street reportage with recent history and political analysis to paint a true-to-life portrait of a vibrant city. As urban centers evolve, Stangler shows, our collective responsibility to honor and sustain the cultural identities woven within their fabric becomes paramount. In a call to action for lovers of Paris and urban-dwellers everywhere, Stangler, a French-American journalist, and Erin Ogunkeye, a journalist with France 24, will locate the heart of the city of lights in its working-class history, and reveal the mechanisms at work pricing residents out of their homes.
