    20 Books of Summer, Karen Hugg, https://karenhugg.com/2018/06/24/20-books-of-summer #Provence #20BooksofSummer #France #Paris #Luberon #books #French

    This summer I’m writing a novel set in Provence so I’ve been dreaming about France. Since I already have a stack of books to inspire me, I thought I’d lengthen my list and join this summer’s 20 Books of Summer event. My books include both fiction and nonfiction set in Provence or elsewhere in France.
