PBS “Travels with Darley” TV host Darley Newman was recently invited by the Embassy of France to interview the Ambassador of France to the United States Philippe Etienne for a live stream conversation from his historic residence in Washington, DC. The live stream on Facebook and Twitter was timely, the day after Bastille Day and the commemoration of a new DC attraction, Lady Liberty’s little sister!
135 years after the Statue of Liberty was unveiled on Liberty Island in New York, another Statue of Liberty has recently made its way from France to the United States. Darley and Ambassador Etienne enjoyed sharing with their friends and fans about this miniature Statue of Liberty, which stands at over 9 feet tall, and her arrival at the French ambassador’s residence in Washington, DC.
Darley also delved into the life of an Ambassador, the history of his stunning residence and French American relations. The two also discovered that they were recently in the state of Wisconsin at the same time, and definitely enjoyed the cheese. Celebrate with us and gain insights into French culture, history and French-American friendship by watching the LIVE.
