Dreaming in French highlights the formative power of life in Paris in the lives of three American icons – Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, Susan Sontag, and Angela Davis. Their brief but powerful encounters with French intellectual life in their early years served to shape their later callings in life – politically, culturally, and intellectually. Join author Alice Kaplan to explore this French influence on American history.
