Albertine

Albertine is part of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and is located inside the historic landmarked Payne Whitney mansion designed by Stanford White. As indicated on their website, it is “the only bookshop in New York devoted solely to books in French and English with more than 14,000 contemporary and classic titles from 30 French-speaking countries.”  The store regularly hosts authors, debates and discussions open to the public at no charge. Since 2017 the Cultural Services has awarded the Albertine Prize for American readers’ favorite work of contemporary Francophone fiction that has been translated into English.

We will be greeted by the Assistant Director who will explain the history, design and decor of the shop and answer any questions.

Cost/RSVP:
None for the tour. Please RSVP no later than April 26th by replying to this email or at the following link:
