*Covid-19 Update: Although our 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. We have moved the events up, to begin at 17h00 (Central European Time). Please check eLibris or our programs calendar for updates and line-up.

Please join us for a conversation between Lindsey Tramuta and Thomas Chatterton Williams as they speak about her much-anticipated book, The New Parisienne, to be released by Abrams on 7 July 2020.

Lifting the veil on the mythologized Parisian woman—white, lithe, ever fashionable—The New Parisienne demystifies this oversimplified archetype and recasts the women of Paris as they truly are, in all their complexity. Featuring 50 activists, creators, educators, visionaries, and disruptors—such as Leïla Slimani, Lauren Bastide, and Mayor Anne Hidalgo—the book reveals Paris as a blossoming cultural center of feminine power and showcases those who are bucking tradition, making names for themselves, and transforming the city.
Lindsey Tramuta is also the author of the bestselling book The New Paris and a regular contributor to the New York Times, Condé Nast Traveler, Afar and Fortune Magazine.
