The Magnificently Intense Poetry, Drama, & Art of Sicily
Melanie Blake is the executive director of Classical Pursuits and organizer of the annual Toronto Pursuits cultural salon. She studied English and French at Fordham University and the Université de Montpellier, and has an MA in literature and linguistics from the University of Nottingham. A solo backpacking trip through the UK, Ireland and France sparked a love of travel that has taken her to the Norman countryside as a teaching assistant, the pulsing streets of New Delhi as a financial editor, and behind the wheel of a tour van as a French-language guide in San Francisco. She loves languages, cocktails, and the unexpected.
