Big ups to Boston. Thanks to the hospitality of the Boston French Library and the local office of the pr firm Financial Dynamics, I spent three days this week in Boston giving book talks to several groups.
Each talk was a lot of fun but the most special event happened on the evening of Thursday Sep. 24, the 110th anniversary of Georges Doriot’s birth, when I addressed about 40 friends and associates of Doriot in his old townhouse on Beacon Hill. Many thanks to Jim and Cathy Stone for hosting the event at the house, which they bought from Doriot’s estate soon after he passed away in 1987. As you will see from these photos, the house is a unique and sparkling gem.
