Alice Kaplan has spent her life telling stories about France, covering past and present, literature and history, the personal and the political. From her memoir French Lessons, to her looks at World War II and its aftermath in The Collaborator and The Interpreter, to her stunning triple biographical portrait in Dreaming in French: The Paris Years of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, Susan Sontag, and Angela Davis. Born in Minnesota, Kaplan is a professor of French at Yale University, an acclaimed translator and is recognized internationally as a leading specialist of the twentieth-century French literature and culture. Alice Kaplan will talk about the romantic dream of mid-century France and three extraordinary American women—Jackie Kennedy, Susan Sontag and Angela Davis—whose lives were changed by Paris.
