Arnold Bennett in Avon, Seine-et-Marne (77), France

I'd been completely unaware of this plaque in Avon near Fontainebleau and only came upon it by chance. This was unveiled by the Arnold Bennett Society in 2008.
'L'auteur anglais
vécut dans la villa "les Néfliers"
(1908-1911) où il écrivit
son chef d'oeuvre
"The Old Wives' Tale"'.
Néflier means 'medlar'.
