My Town: Francophile Elizabeth New on
where to find France in Dallas
January 25, 2009
Elizabeth New is a Dallas native, her heart belongs to France, specifically
to Paris and Provence, where she spends as much time as possible.
"In my former life, I was a professor of French" at the
University of North Texas, she says.
To combine the best of classroom experience with real-life appreciation
for France, she created French Affaires, a company "celebrating
travel, culture, language and l'art de vivre," according to
the Web site (www.frenchaffaires.com).
The practical application is running the Web site, e-publishing
a newsletter, or "plog, short for Paris and Provence blog,"
helping people plan travel in France, leading tour groups, hosting
a book club and giving seminars in Dallas about all things French.
