Caroline Weber

Wednesday, May 30, 7:30 p.m.

Acclaimed author, French literature professor, and fashion historian, Dr. Caroline Weber returns to French high society with Proust’s Duchess: How Three Celebrated Women Captured the Imagination of Fin de Siècle Paris. The book features three wealthy but unhappily married paragons of Parisian nobility, elegance, and style, who captured the attention of Marcel Proust and were the inspiration for his supreme fictional character, the Duchesse de Guermantes. Through masked balls, court visits, and nights at the opera, Weber escorts her reader into the daily lives of these women celebrated as living legends. Back by popular demand, Weber appeared at Arts & Letters Live years ago for her book Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution.
