Published: L’Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux in France’s Le Figaro

Et voilà! Elizabeth Parker Photographie has returned back to its French roots! One of my photos is appearing in France’s newspaper Le Figaro‘s L’Avis du Vin.

I was very excited to be asked to photograph this amazing evening at the Willard Intercontinental for by David Choi, proprietor of Pearson’s Wines and Spirits and organizer of the event. L’Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux tours the US and Canada every year, but this is the first time in a decade that they have stopped in DC. The night was a huge success with several ambassadors and senators in attendance.

Much thanks to Bijan Jabbari who reports to Le Figaro from Washington. You can see the article below. My photo is the 2nd one of many of the winemakers with the Ambassador of France, François Delattre.

I speak ze French. And so can your kids… {Translator} Washington, DC

Look what arrived on my doorstep!

My sweet friend, Katie, contacted me a few months back and asked me if I’d be interested in helping on her latest publishing project for Barefoot Books. The “Bear” series had been previously published in the UK, and now they wanted to create bilingual books to help kids learn French, Spanish and Arabic vocabulary. My answer was, of course, “OF COURSE!”

Pictured are the first 2 that I worked on. They had already been translated, but I went back through to proofread and fine tune things a bit. It was really fun, and it made me so happy to use my French. So, obviously, when Katie asked me if I would translate the next 2 books in the series from top to bottom, my response was, “BIEN SÛR!”

I’m super excited because in the next ones I get a credit as translator… PAS MAL.

And yes… I drink wine while reading children’s books…don’t you?
