La Vie en Rose

Today’s question: New Shoreham is the only town on what island, the southernmost part of the state of Rhode Island?

The answer: Edith Piaf
She was named Édith after the World War I British nurse Edith Cavell, who was executed 2 months before Édith’s birth for helping French soldiers escape from German captivity. Piaf – slang for “sparrow” – was a nickname she received 20 years later.
