As part of the current exhibit “American Women Rebuilding France”, the Museum’s resident wine expert will do a presentation. The poppy has obviously become the symbol of the dead soldiers whose bodies enrich the soil of Picardy, and champagne is the local wine. Patrick Alexander’s talk will cover not only the story of champagne and its bubbles but also the rich history of Picardy and its saga of major battles from the early middle ages to the horrors of the two world wars. While enjoying a glass or two of Champagne, Patrick wants to remind people of where it came from and at what cost. Lest we forget. $30 general public, $20 Museum Members. Exhibit admission, lecture and champagne included. Registration required
