Adopted by Sandrine in France
Simenon was born in Liège, Belgium in 1903. He wrote in French. Sandrine has read some of the 75 existing Commissaire Maigret books. Maigret is a police inspector in Paris from the 30s to the 60s.
I am currently loaded down with french reading for my classes, but I'm putting a couple of these on my list for after grad school (over in May!!). I love detective stories...
And here are the lovely french stamps she used. The large one is of Marie Curie for "2011, Année Internationale de la Chimie". I had no idea chemistry had an international year to celebrate it!
Merci beaucoup Sandrine!
