Le Bristol Paris Hosts Literary Charity Dinner Series
Le Bristol Paris will host “The Wine, the Books,” an intimate monthly literary dinner series in the hotel’s Salon Castellane, with all profits from the event donated to the American Hospital of Paris.
Each month, journalist Olivier Barrot will welcome famous authors to discuss their work during a three-course dinner created by three Michelin-starred chef Eric Frechon. To accompany dinner, sommelier Marco Pelletier will handpick a wine with the selected winemaker in attendance to share his passion and knowledge about the wine. Fewer than 80 guests will attend each event, and they will receive a copy of the book signed by the invited author.
All proceeds from these dinners will be donated to the American Hospital of Paris, a non-profit institution created in 1906 to provide medical care from English-speaking health specialists for Americans residing in France, regardless of their financial means. These donations will help finance the purchase of equipment and the construction of a new wing dedicated to the future oncology department.
