Café Society: Time Suspended, the Cafes & Bistros of Paris is her book. The Parisian café is an integral part of the city’s daily life no matter the weather, the time of day or year, the mood or neighborhood. It is the spirit of the café , the dance of the waiters, the camaraderie of the patrons, the perpetual movement and joy, that brings Joanie to share a dollop of history, a shot of insight, and a boatload of images that celebrate the Paris café as a cultural heritage worth celebrating and preserving.
