Welcome to Episode 67 of Profiles in Franceformation. I’m your host Allison Grant Lounes, and this week, I’m back with Lisa Vanden Bos, who has been a pillar of the American community in France, since she arrived three decades ago.

Lisa launched FUSAC in the 90's, a print magazine that was the go-to resource for English speakers in Paris to help them find jobs, housing, and much more. Lisa has also recently launched Bill and Rosa's Book Room, a used English bookshop at Poitou Sacou.

Listen to Lisa's story and love for France including…

  • Why her Mother's scrapbook inspired the move to France
  • How the business developed and the challenges they faced.
  • Navigating Retirement in France
  • How Lisa navigated the citizenship process
  • How Lisa created a French life.
  • The plans for the book shop
  • And much more...
