I originally received this news from the Association France Etats-Unis Grenoble, a great networking group for expats in Grenoble.

The American School of Grenoble (ASG), in the Europole district, is an institute where children can receive an American education from 6th to 12th grade. Founded in 1993, they have recently been granted its international accreditation by the “Council of International Schools”. You can read the press release here.

Former US Ambassador to France Felix Rohatyn at American Library Feb. 8

Former US Ambassador to France Felix Rohatyn will be speaking at the American Library in Paris on Tuesday February 8 at 7:30pm. You can read more about the event here. This is part of the “Evenings with an Author” series at the library, which is located at 10, rue du Général Camou 75007 Paris.

Felix Rohatyn presents his memoir Dealings.

It was a German soldier’s chance decision to reach for a cigarette and absently wave a car through a checkpoint outside Marseille in 1940 that allowed Felix Rohatyn and his Jewish family to escape from Nazi-occupied France. In the States, a chance summer job led him to the small, private investment bank of Lazard Freres, where he came under the tutelage of legendary financier Andre Meyer. The summer job turned into an extraordinary fifty-year career.

About Felix Rohatyn

Rohatyn is an American investment banker known for his role in preventing the bankruptcy of New York City in the 1970s. He served as United States Ambassador to France from 1997-2000.
