“New York in Stride”

New York in Stride_Rizzoli_Cover.png

Because Paris in Stride needed a cute kid sister! I’m thrilled to share with you New York in Stride: An Insider’s Walking Guide to be released by Rizzoli on February 18th, 2020.

Murray pup_intro.pngIt is the “must-visit, must-see” travel list given to you by the New Yorker friend you wish you had. Vibrantly illustrated throughout by yours truly, this practical guide transports readers to discover an insider’s view of the Big Apple, featuring eleven curated neighborhood destination walks–guiding the reader through the energetic New York streets. Cultural musings, accessible histories, anecdotes, and informative details accompany the illustrations throughout, making this volume as practical as it is beautiful.

I have to give it you, dear readers, for making Paris in Stride a smashing success. I’ve heard tales of stolen copies. One fan bought a stack of 10 copies and doles them out to everyone who visits Paris. And my dear parents have ordered so many copies that they are probably responsible for at least one of several of its reprints. If you are so inclined, please preorder your copy here so you can be one of the first to take New York in stride.

In the same spirit, my Etsy shop is freshly updated just in time to pick the ideal gift for the Francophile in your life, including lots of new mix-and-match Paris prints, postcards and sticker packs. And of course, my book “Paris in Stride: An Insider’s Walking Guide” (Rizzoli) can easily be tucked under your arm on your next trip to Paris or snugly into a stocking, purchased *preferably* at your favorite independent bookstore or on Amazon. If you have the book already, be a pal and leave a glowing Amazon review here. It really helps out a young author like myself.

Looking for a signed copy of “Paris in Stride” in Paris? I went on a Sharpie bender at Gagliani Bookstore 224 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris. Pick up a signed copy there.

 

 

 

 

 

Sartorial recall: Tips on how to dress in Paris…

When I first moved to France 10 years ago, my personal style was Carmen Miranda meets Chiquita Banana. Immigrating to France means contractually committing to becoming French. This isn’t American where you can show up in a diaper and someone will say “I <3 U". My sartorial choices were tutti frutti at best...

Masterclass!

Watercolor workshop_Jessie Kanelos Weiner

For me, food and art go hand in hand. Join me for a dynamic masterclass at French cooking school La Cuisine Paris, walking through my creative process, watercolor techniques and tricks for creating your own glorious works of art. Haven’t picked up a paintbrush since primary school? No fret, I will structure the event with a handful of drawing exercises to loosen everyone up, followed by timed pointers with pointers and prompts to get the creative juices flowing. All levels are welcome. Inspiration will be drawn from a gorgeous still life of fresh produce, flowers and Parisian objects.

Price of admission includes a palette with a selection of liquid Winsor & Newton watercolor paints, a paintbrush, pencil and watercolor paper. Participants are welcome to bring their own materials, too. Wine and nibbles are also included to keep the afternoon interesting.

Spots are going quickly, but book HERE

NOTE: Although this event is generously hosted by La Cuisine Paris, this is not a cooking class.
