American Cities presentation schedule


This is the list of topics to present in January and February. You may want to start doing some research.

American Cities


As some of you couldn't find the reader by Gina D. B. Clemen Blackcat readers (Vicens Vives), I asked the editorial. They told me you could order it online on this link and then you would have it sent to your homes in a couple of days.

We will start reading this book next week: Dec 20th and 21st

How much did the Dutch pay for Manhattan Island in 1614? Where is the world's blue jeans headquarters? Who can you meet in the 'Malibu Colony', near Los Angeles?

New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New Orleans are America's most distinctive and exciting cities. Similar in some ways and yet completely different in others, they fascinate everyone who visits them. Open this book and find out why.
