The Mayor of Paris, Monsieur Bertrand Delanoe, paid a visit to Chicago earlier this week for the first time.

Delphine Pontvieux was one of the guests at the private cocktail party (hosted at the Chicago French market) attended by both the Mayors of Chicago and Paris.

She presented Monsieur Delanoe with a copy of her novel as a souvenir from his visit, who thanked her warmly for the unexpected present.
