Virtual: A Conversation with Author Samantha Vérant *For Adults

Tuesday, October 19, 2021

In 2020, author Samantha Vérant dazzled readers and critics with her debut women’s fiction novel, "The Secret French Recipes" of Sophie Valroux, the story of a young female chef who journeys to France with aspirations of earning a coveted spot in an elite kitchen and earning her Michelin stars - even though only 1% of chefs who are bestowed the honor are women. Now, Vérant whisks readers off to Paris in her delightful sequel, SOPHIE VALROUX’S PARIS STARS.

It's a book birthday! Let's celebrate the release of Samantha's book SOPHIE VALROUX’S PARIS STARS with a cuppa tea and a nice slice of birthday cake :).

About the Author:

Samantha Vérant is a travel addict, a self-professed oenophile, and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, at home French chef. She lives in southwestern France, where she's married to a sexy French rocket scientist she met in 1989 (but ignored for twenty years), a stepmom to two incredible kids, and the adoptive mother to a ridiculously adorable French cat. When she’s not trekking from Provence to the Pyrénées or embracing her inner Julia Child, Sam is making her best effort to relearn those dreaded conjugations.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Ashland Public Library.
