The Choate Rosemary Hall Bulletin spring issue will feature an author profile of Trustee Gretchen Cooper Leach '57 and a book review of her Letters from Paris.The book is a compilation of letters Gretchen wrote to her family and friends when her husband, Howard H. Leach, served as U.S. Ambassador to France from 2001 to 2005. Available on Amazon, the book is a personal account of their lives in Paris with behind-the-scenes glimpses of their official duties while representing the United States in France as well as their social lives.
Says Gretchen, "We had an amazing life that covered a multitude of experiences and venues. The letters are interesting and informative, and funny. There are recipes from our wonderful chef at the residence and there are a lot of photographs of the various aspects of our lives in France. The book has been well received and brings back memories that I never want to forget."
