Following official information received yesterday pertaining to the Plan Vigipirate, applicable to all governmental and non-governmental institutions with a link to France, the  Alliance Francaise of Washington DC reserves the right to ask first-time visitors for their government-issue ID when they enter the building.

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding. This procedure is temporary but will remain in place until further notice.

France Forward Series

What do the electronic cigarette, stents and an electric helicopter have in common? They were all invented by the French! France may be France Forever but it is neither static nor fossilized. Whether it be in medicine, air and space, economics or philosophy, France leads the way and this series shows you just how, so that next time you take the train or bake a cake you can ponder over how the French invented the TGV and the silicone mold.
