A Passion for Paris, with David Downie

Author David Downie is a native San Franciscan who’s lived in Paris since 1986 and whose travel, food, wine and arts features have appeared in over 50 leading print media worldwide.

Downie is also co-owner with his wife Alison Harris of Paris, Paris Tours custom walking tours of Paris, Burgundy, Rome & the Italian Riviera. He is the author of the critically acclaimed PARIS, PARIS, and the bestselling PARIS TO THE PYRENEES (which he presented at Powell’s in 2013).

Downie will return to Powell’s on Tuesday, June 9 at 7:30pm to discuss his latest book, A PASSION FOR PARIS: Romanticism and Romance in the City of Light (St. Martin’s Press.)

A unique combination of memoir, history, and travelogue, this is the author’s quest to uncover why Paris is the world’s most romantic city—and has been for over 150 years.
