Trips & Excursions

Saturday, December 16, 10 a.m. – approximately 10 p.m.

April 15 through 21, 2018

Politics and Prose invites you to join us for a delightful week in southern France. We’ll visit sites associated with artists Cézanne and van Gogh and writer Émile Zola, as well as experiencing classic Provençal food, wine, and culture. We’ll settle in for three days in Aix-en-Provence, known for its abundance of beautiful fountains, and then three days in St. Rémy, with side trips to Arles and Les Baux.

July 15 through 22, 2018

Politics and Prose invites you to join a group of fellow readers and fans of mystery writer Mark Pryor for an exclusive and affordable week in Paris. You’ll spend time with Mark exploring some of the most memorable scenes associated with Hugo Marston, fictional head of security at the American Embassy. And you’ll also have time to explore some of the small gems of Paris—the lesser-known museums, the spectacular parks, the off-the-beaten-track cafés, the hidden passages that are home to specialty boutiques and other treasures.
