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.

Alice Kaplan is the John M. Musser Professor of French at Yale University. An award-winning author, her works include French Lessons, The Interpreter, and The Collaborator which won the LA Times Book Award.
