Wednesday March 23 at 6pm, online lecture, with Mary McAuliffe
Author Mary McAuliffe is back by popular demand, to lecture on the topic of her book, When Paris Sizzled: The 1920s Paris of Hemingway, Chanel, Cocteau, Cole Porter, Josephine Baker, and Their Friends. Mary will touch upon the key individuals, movements, transformations, and undercurrents of the period. Yes, she will speak about the seismic changes on almost every front, and major figures that we know well and would like to know more intimately—those mentioned in her title along with Picasso, Stravinsky, Proust, May Ray, Diaghilev, and many others. But she will also reveal an undercurrent of despair and the rise of a ruthless extreme right. Mary will describe the rich cultural life of Montparnasse, its bars, and its cafes, preparing Les Historiennes participants for other spring events in which we will visit those very places ourselves!
Cost: 15€50 (including 50 cent PayPal Convenience Charge)
