Join us for an evening with Dr. Kate Kirkpatrick as she speaks about her new book, Becoming Beauvoir

Simone de Beauvoir was one of the most influential intellectuals of the twentieth century. Yet her life has been widely misrepresented and profoundly misunderstood. In Becoming Beauvoir, Kate Kirkpatrick draws on previously unpublished diaries and letters to offer a unique insight into Beauvoir’s relationships, her philosophy of freedom and love, and the complex struggle it was to become herself.
