    A Guided Visit to the BELvue Museum


    Join us on Saturday, March 4 for a guided visit of the recently renovated Bellevue Museum. Chips, beer and chocolates... surely there is more to Belgium than that? Democracy, prosperity, solidarity, pluralism, migration, languages and Europe: these are the themes used by the BELvue Museum to help you to discover Belgium. Each one is developed through present-day testimonials and then traced right through history. This is a modern, original way of gaining a fuller understanding of modern-day Belgium.

    Have a look at the gallery too: there are more than 200 objects to view, each one forming a tangible memory of Belgium. Here are just a few examples: a lithograph by Magritte, a motorcycle, crystal vases by Val Saint-Lambert, and a football signed by the Red Devils. The very essence of Belgian-ness!

    After the visit, those who wish to may join us for a drink or a coffee in the neighborhood.

    Please note that this event is limited to 20 participants.

    The Wonder
    by Emma
    Donoghue (Ireland/Canada)

    The Irish Midlands, 1859. An English nurse, Lib Wright, is summoned to a tiny village to observe what some are claiming as a medical anomaly or a miracle - a girl said to have survived without food for months. Tourists have flocked to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O'Donnell, and a journalist has come down to cover the sensation.

    The Wonder is a tale of two strangers who transform each other's lives, a psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.

     

    On April 12, Ana Ooms will present:


    The Swans of Fifth Avenue
    by Melanie Benjamin
    (USA)

    Melanie Benjamin is an American author, native of the Midwest and living in Chicago, known for writing historical novels. Her bibliography includes The Aviator’s Wife (about Ann Morrow Lindbergh), Alice I Have Been (Alice Liddell, the inspiration for Alice in Wonderland) and The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb (the story of 32-inch-tall Lavinia Warren Stratton). 

    The Swans of Fifth Avenue, her latest novel, is the story of how Truman Capote gains an unlikely entrée into the lives of Manhattan’s elite through his friendships with the socialites he called his swans. He was particularly favored by Babe Paley and, through her, he was given unparalleled access to the scandal and gossip of her powerful friends. But a story teller cannot keep a secret, and Truman Capote least of all, even if it leads to his downfall after parts of his unfinished novel Answered Prayers are published in Esquire magazine. 

    Readers who would like to become more familiar with the topic of the book can read up on it following this link:  http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2012/12/truman-capote-answered-prayers

     

    On July 12, Geneviève Bergiers will present:

    The Shipping News
    by Annie Proulx (USA)

    The American novelist Annie Proulx was a journalist before becoming a novelist. She lived in Vermont, then in Wyoming, spending part of the year in northern Newfoundland on a small cove. She now lives in Seattle, Washington.

    The Shipping News won the Pulitzer and the U.S. National Book award.

    Synopsis:
    Quoyle's life is collapsing after his parents' joint suicide and his unfaithful wife Petal being killed in a car accident.
    His aunt Agnis Hamm convinces him to make a new beginning by returning to their ancestral home in Newfoundland. He learns deep and disturbing secrets about his ancestors that emerge in strange ways...

    Nevertheless, as Quoyle builds his new life, he is transformed...

    Second Tuesday
    Historic Bar Tour

    March 14, 2017


    The Old Oak
    Rue Franklin 26
    1000 Brussels

    Join other beer and Brussels lovers for a pre-St. Patrick’s Day celebration as we embark on another Second Tuesday Historic Bar Tour social hour. This month we leave the center of the city and travel to the Quartier Européen for an Irish pub. The pub not only has a selection of Belgian beers but Irish beers to get you ready for St. Patrick’s Day.  

    Review from the website laymanslondon.com:
    “A full-on Irish pub in Brussels' European Quarter, the Old Oak is awash with old-world paraphernalia, Celtic charm and television screens showing whatever football game is on in Europe. It draws in lively young Eurocrats and has a bit of atmosphere.  The pub is housed in a deep, slim nineteenth century building, but a massive stain glass roof in the back room prevents the place getting too dingy.”

    The Historic Bar Tour events are held the second Tuesday of each month and take place at different and great locations throughout the city of Brussels.
