Mary McAuliffe’s multilayered exploration of Paris weaves a narrative that takes the reader into secret and hidden places, even in the midst of the most well-known Paris destinations.

Join BMAV and friends for a discussion by McAuliffe of her newest book to be released in 2023.

McAuliffe’s hidden places can be small but are always revealing, whether a bas-relief on an ignored corner of Notre-Dame or an overlooked courtyard inside an ancient and busy hospital. She takes the reader below the streets and sidewalks of Paris to discover ancient aqueducts and a lost river, and she prompts the reader to notice overlooked treasures in the most trafficked of museums.

The story of Paris is not a chronology but an exploration of the many layers of this remarkable city throughout the ages.

McAuliffe also shares her insights and photos of Paris with her readers on her Paris Facebook photo blog (
