Welcome to WeeklyWilson.com, where author/film critic Connie (Corcoran) Wilson avoids totally losing her marbles in semi-retirement by writing about film (see the Chicago Film Festival reviews and SXSW), politics and books----her own books and those of other people. You'll also find her diverging frequently to share humorous (or not-so-humorous) anecdotes and concerns. Try it! You'll like it!

Notre Dame de Strasbourg

The Notre Dame cathedral in Strasbourg. France is so closely bordered by shops, hotels and restaurants that it was impossible for me to get a photo showing the church in its entirety.   This magnificent structure completely dominates its surroundings.  Strasbourg is a lovely city, the ninth largest in France.

“An American in Paris” by Pamela: Cannes

Why did I go to France?  For most of my life I have wanted to be able to speak French.  I studied French in high school and I majored in French at the University of Iowa but even after all that study, I could not speak French, at least, not very well.  I enrolled in the American Institute for Foreign Study and on September 14, 1997, I arrived in Cannes, France to begin a two week orientation before my trip to Paris and the beginning of my great adventure. Here are some views from my room at the International College of Cannes and across the street on the beach of the French Riviera.
