PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
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.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Human rights advocate Clemantine Wamariya captures the personal aftershocks of war, displacement, and survival in her powerful memoir The Girl Who Smiled Beads: A Story of War and What Comes After. At age 6, Clemantine and her 15-year-old sister, Claire, were two of the millions of people who fled Rwanda in 1994 while over 800,000 people were murdered. She recounts with breathtaking clarity both the kindness and the cruelty she and Claire encountered while wandering through seven African countries for six years searching for safety and shelter. Upon receiving asylum in the United States in 2000, Clemantine and her sister worked to build new lives amidst fresh difficulties, but their lives took dramatically different paths. Wamariya holds a BA from Yale University in Comparative Literature. A powerful public speaker, Wamariya now uses stories drawn from her experiences to catalyze change and create community; she has spoken at the United Nations, TEDxYale, and the US Department of Homeland Security Human Rights Law Conference.
