PENGUIN #15 Lost Moorings

 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!
