The Shepherd University Department of English and Modern Languages will sponsor Literary Paris, a trip to Paris from March 10 to 17, 2012.

In order to join the tour, a $500 non-refundable deposit is due by Sept. 2.

The full cost of the trip will depend on how many people pay in full by Nov. 2.

The tour fee includes round trip airfare, airport taxes/fuel surcharges, accommodation in three- to four-star hotel, continental breakfast and dinners, a Casterbridge Tour manager/guide to accompany the group 24 hours a day from arrival to departure, several pre-booked admissions, the expertise and perspective of local guides, transportation by private coach for airport transfers and touring (except in Paris, where public transport is used) and all taxes.
