Scott Dominic Carpenter - "French Like Moi: A Midwesterner in ...

Join Alliance Française Chicago Library Director, Renée Saito, as she interviews Scott Dominic Carpenter about his hilarious memoir, "French Like Moi: A Midwesterner in Paris." (Conducted in English.)

Presented in partnership with Cultural Services of the French Embassy

Virtual event

About the book: When Scott Carpenter moves from Minnesota to Paris, little does he suspect the dramas that await: scheming neighbors, police denunciations, surly demonstrators, cooking disasters, medical mishaps—not to mention all those lectures about cheese! It turns out that nothing in the City of Light can be taken for granted, where even trips to the grocery store lead to adventure. Everything is grist for Carpenter’s mill. In eighteen tales, he lifts the curtain on what passes for normal in Europe’s most glorious capital: neighbors who plot to murder one another, hiccups in transportation, bizarre store exchange policies, operatic dramas in the condo association, healthcare à la française, underground labyrinths, and even terrorism. In the company of a cast of recurring characters, he leads us through the merry labyrinth of the everyday, one hilarious faux pas after another. Through it all, Carpenter, winner of Mark Twain House Royal Nonesuch Prize for humor, keeps his eye on the central mystery of what makes the French French (and Midwesterners Midwestern).

About the author: Scott Dominic Carpenter teaches literature and creative writing at Carleton College (MN). Winner of a Mark Twain House Royal Nonesuch Prize (2018) and a Minnesota State Arts Board grant, he’s the author of "Theory of Remainders: A Novel" (named to Kirkus Reviews’ “Best Books of 2013”) and of "This Jealous Earth: Stories." His shorter work has appeared in a wide variety of venues, including "South Dakota Review," "The Rumpus," "Silk Road," "Catapult," and various anthologies. His website is sdcarpenter.com.

About the interlocutor: Renée Saito, MLIS, is Director of the Resource Center at the Alliance Française de Chicago, where she hosts events, oversees the archives, and curates the Midwest’s largest private non-university francophone collection.
