It’s been hard for me to find a way to talk about the attacks on Paris without really talking about them. This is an entertainment site, and I have no professional standing to discuss world events of this type on anything beyond a very personal level.

Paris has been a setting for important works of Western literature and entertainment for centuries. Many of us, even if we haven’t traveled there, feel a connection to the city through books, movies, television shows, or other media that have touched our lives. Please feel free to share and discuss whatever you need to here.
