A literary tourist in Paris

I’ve been involved with the KZN Literary Tourism project at UKZN since 2006; producing literary trails, managing their website and, more recently, assisting with teaching.  We’ve just come back from a trip to Paris (which is excellent!), where I realised I had inadvertently become a literary tourist, visiting Shakespeare and Company (and getting the all important stamp in the front of the book I bought) and making a pilgrimage to Oscar Wilde’s grave at the Cimetière du Père Lachaise.

Think I may have been brainwashed … just kidding Lindy!  They are both great spots to visits and I’d recommend them to anyone with a day to spare in the city of light.
