Liza Wieland presents Paris, 7 A.M.

June 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


It is June 1937, and Elizabeth Bishop—a few years out of college and with no husband and no career—heads to Paris with her roommate, in search of escape and inspiration. Be swept up in Elizabeth’s journey as she attempts to overcome writer’s block and find her footing in the Parisian literary scene, while the threats of fascism and occupation loom. As Elizabeth forges new bonds and builds a community to bolster her during this transformative period, her world simultaneously starts to crumble with Europe’s descent into war. For fans of the real Elizabeth Bishop, it is a delight to spend time with the young poet during these tumultuous, exciting early years.
