ESSUP - When Paulette Maggiolo moved to America from France 65 years ago, she brought her languages with her. All five of them.
After she married an American officer she had met during World War II, she built her life in the United States teaching the languages - French, English, Spanish, Italian and German - in public and private schools.
Now 90, she is spending her retirement writing novels and nonfiction books in her native and adopted tongues.
Most of her works reflect parts of her life: "The Guilty Teacher" is about an educator dealing with the prevalence of drugs in schools; "No Such Word" traces the relationships of a war bride brought to the U.S. She has written books about cooking, grammar, graduation parties and immigrants. Now she is working on a book of conversations "between two old women," inspired by her talks with her sister in France.
