‘Crossing Cultures’ Book Signing and Discussion May 23

“Crossing Cultures”

The University community is invited to a discussion and book signing with Lynne Breakstone and Nicole Jouane, authors of Crossing Cultures: in English et en français on Thursday, May 23, at 6 p.m. in the Sunnen Lounge.

In the early 1960s, two women set off in opposite directions to cross the Atlantic to spend a year living in a foreign country – France and the United States – and mastering a foreign language. Crossing Cultures tells their story in both languages.

Lynne Breakstone was one of the first American Junior-Year-Abroad participants while Nicole Jouane served for a year as a teaching assistant in an American college. Both shared in the delight as well as the difficulties of having to decipher behaviors and customs that were at times confusing and mysterious.

The event will be in both English and French. Refreshments will be served.
