Salon Silicon Valley: Celtic Culture in France & How Women fit into it
November 2, 2019 at 7 pm

The Alliance Française Silicon Valley announces a salon to discuss the Celtic culture that is being uncovered by archeological studies across Europe, especially as it relates to present-day France. From thriving Iron Age
domains in Burgundy to the blossoming of the current champagne trade, this multi-disciplinary approach seeks to piece together a more accurate view of the past by relying on verifiable facts and cutting-edge technology.

Author Jacqueline Widmar Stewart, and husband, fellow researcher and editor Blair Walker Stewart will lead the salon in English. A bilingual French and English discussion will be facilitated by Hélène Laroche Davis.

Stewart’s other books include Parks and Gardens in Greater Paris (also available in French), Champagne Regained, and the first two books of the Hidden Women series: A History of Europe, Celts and Freedom and Celtic
Burgundy. Alumni of Stanford Law School, team Stewart is conducting an on-going exploration of Celtic Europe.

Champagne and light refreshments will be served.
