Journeys with Julia
Join us on February 9th for a discussion on Julia Child with Noël Riley Fitch and Bert Sonnenfeld!
Noël Riley Fitch is a biographer and historian of expatriate intellectuals in Paris in the first half of the 20th century. She is the author of several books on Paris as well as the author of the biographies of Sylvia Beach, Anaïs Nin, and Julia Child.
Noël was the only biographer exclusively authorized by Julia Child to write her biography, published in 1997, Appetite for Life: The Biography of Julia Child. The 2012 edition has a new introduction.
Noël will be joined by her husband, culinary historian Bert Sonnenfeld, a long-time friend of CHSC. Nancy Zaslavsky will moderate and question the two about their lunches, dinners, cocktails, and romps through France (and elsewhere) with Julia over the years.
Mark Taper Auditorium, Downtown Central Library, 630 W. 5th St.
Free and open to the public
