[ French authors on tour this fall ] The book office at the Cultural Services | French Embassy in the US will organize a US tour this fall for the authors listed below. The authors are available for booking to travel and meet audiences across the Midwest !
[ Chicago - Fashion ] Imagine a world without the shirt dress; the classic choice for hiding that ‘I had a big lunch’ belly. Imagine a summer without breezy, floaty skirts. Imagine Audrey without her little black dress, Wallis without her jaw dropping gowns, and Grace without her super slinky green number. It’s a world that doesn’t bear thinking about! Whether you’re a fashionista or are more comfortable chilling out in your jammies, come at the Alliance Française de Chicago to hear Gillion Carrara tell the story behind Hubert de Givenchy, who put Paris at the top of the fashion world in the 1950s – and set the first relationship between fashion and film thanks to his 40-year long collaboration with Audrey Hepburn.
[ Milwaukee - WW1 Centennial ] The UWM Libraries & the Alliance Française de Milwaukee invite the public to the premier of the documentary film, Anne Morgan’s War / L’autre chemin des Dames, with Elaine Leary and Miles Morgan. The film is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition, also on the fourth floor of the Golda Meir Library, “Anne Morgan’s War: American Women Rebuilding France 1917-1924,” which runs to May 18, 2018.
