Louisiana-based writer Richard Goodman visits Barrington’s White House to discuss his popular book, French Dirt: The Story of a Garden in the South of France. The book is a love story between an American and his French garden. It’s about digging, planting, watering, and tending and about sun, dirt, water, air and the privilege of work. It’s about the growing friendship between an American outsider and a close-knit community of French farmers in a little village outside of time.
The San Francisco Chronicle said that French Dirt is “one of the most charming, perceptive and subtle books ever written about the French by an American.” Richard Goodman is also the author of The Soul of Creative Writing, A New York Memoir and The Bicycle Diaries: One New Yorker’s Journey Through 9/11.
A light reception and cash bar will be available after the presentation.
