Stuck Inside? Why Not Learn to Make Pain au Lait?

Posted Apr 05 2020

Journalist and author Pamela Druckerman MIA ’98 checked in from her home in Paris to share PANDEMONIUM U, which she launched with her husband Simon Kuper. PANDEMONIUM U offers free, live, online classes for kids (and grown-ups) taught by world-class but housebound experts in their fields. The 40-minute classes are taught via Zoom. Druckerman said that over 1,000 people have watched and attended classes since she launched PAN-U in mid-March.

You can join the mailing list by emailing [email protected] or check out the latest classes on its Facebook page.
