In The Gourmands’ WayJustin Spring chronicles the lives of six Americans in mid-century Paris—Julia Child, M.F.K. Fisher, A. J. Liebling, Alexis Lichine, Richard Olney, and Alice Toklas—whose brilliant writings changed the way Americans think about food, cooking, and wine. Spring, a former fellow at the GC’s Leon Levy Center for Biography and a National Book Award finalist, speaks with Jennifer Steinhauer of The New York Times about his innovative, critically acclaimed, and prize-winning new book. “Erudite…entertaining and eminently readable”—The Wall Street Journal

Presented with the Leon Levy Center for Biography. Co-sponsored by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and Albertine bookstore.

Join us for a post-event book signing and tasting of Romilly Cidre.
