American Library In Paris — Virtual Event
May 5, 2020 , 11:00 am to 12:00 pm
Although the physical space has temporarily closed, the Library will continue with its Evening with an Author programming during the period of confinement. Our events will continue to be free and open to the public via Zoom (please RSVP here to receive meeting details and password). Events begin at 17h00 (Central European Time).
Please join the American Library in Paris as we check in with author Whitney Scharer, author of The Age of Light. This absorbing debut tells a fictionalized account of Lee Miller’s life, focusing on the years she spent in Paris and her tumultuous relationship with Surrealist artist Man Ray. An icon during her own time, Lee’s bold vision and fearlessness still serve today as a template for a life lived fully. In Whitney’s novel, we follow Lee through her time as a model, Surrealist photographer, fashion photographer, war correspondent, and gourmet chef. Whitney will discuss her book as well as provide us with updates about its reception and translation.
