While we were discussing to whom we could give our latest
Award, it was not difficult to choose! Since our dear
Juliette Benzoni will celebrate her 90th birthday
on 30.10.2010, it
seemed the perfect occasion to surprise Juliette, with
our Catherine de Montsalvy Award. The beautiful
creation made by LaLuna (my sister), will be put on a ceramic
and given in person to Juliette!
Therefore, it is with great joy, we announce that we
have chosen Juliette Benzoni as our latest AWARD winner.
It is our way to say thank you, for her generosity to
share with her faithful readers, so many souvenirs and
for the joy she gave us, writing her wonderful books.
p.s. with great joy and with tears in her eyes, Juliette
Benzoni received the Catherine de Montsalvy AWARD while
Frédérique and I were invited at her home in Saint-Mandé
While the idea of the AWARD was born out of enjoyment
for the Catherine site, I never dreamed that I would one
day have the extraordinarily honor to show my gratitude
with a prize to my all-time favorite author Juliette,
who had accepted the Trophy with so much grace as if it
really came from a distinguished organization.
