    December 14 – Presented by Geneviève Bergiers


    Avenue of Mysteries
    by John Irving (USA)

    This is the story of what happens to Juan Diego in the Philippines, where what happened to him in the past –in Mexico– collides with his future.

    John Irving is the author of The World According to Garp. His fiction comes down to this: it serves our need for spiritual defense. Is this no more than a bag of brilliant tricks? Possibly, but in times like ours, it cannot be too highly prized!

    The Nightingale
    by Kristin Hannah (USA)

    Kristin Hannah is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty-one novels, including the blockbuster Firefly Lane and #1 bestsellers Night Road and Home Front. She is a former lawyer turned writer and is the mother of one son. She lives in the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii with her husband.

    Synopsis:
    Despite their differences, sisters Vianne and Isabelle have always been close. Younger, bolder Isabelle lives in Paris while Vianne is content with life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. But when World War II strikes, Antoine is sent off to fight and Vianne finds herself isolated, so Isabelle is sent by their father to help her.

    As the war progresses, the sisters' relationship and strength are tested. With life changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Vianne and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions.

    A Guided Visit to the
    Picasso Matisse Exhibition

    “21 rue la Boétie”


    Join us on Saturday, January 14, 2017, for a guided visit of the exhibition, “21 rue de la Boétie” at the Museum La Boverie in Liège.

    Based on the book “21 rue La Boétie“, Tempora presents an art and culture exhibition in collaboration with Anne Sinclair. In her book, Anne Sinclair tells the story of her grandfather, Paul Rosenberg (1881-1959), one of the great art dealers of the first half of the last century.

    The career of this exceptional human being, a successful businessman and knowledgeable art lover, the friend and agent of Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Léger, Marie Laurencin is only one part of the story. “21 rue La Boétie“ looks into a crucial turning point in the history of art: the shift of the centre of artistic gravity from one side of the Atlantic to the other, due of course to the upheavals caused by the Second World War.

    Please note that this visit is limited to 20 people.

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