French Cultural Center Alliance Française of Boston
The French Cultural Center is honored to welcome iconic journalist and bestselling author Anne Sinclair for the American release of her book, In the Shadows of Paris. It is a privilege to offer you her first appearance in America for her most recent work.
The interview will be led by Dr Guila Clara Kessous, professor, human rights activist who is also UNESCO Artist for Peace. During this interview we will discuss Anne Sinclair’s last book, which is based on her family history as well as her writing process.
Anne Sinclair was born in New York City and moved to France with her family as a young girl. There she rose to fame, in part due to her family’s vast collection of paintings by Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and Léger, which she would become heir to, but also because her prominence as a highly regarded broadcast journalist led to her serving as the model for statues of Marianne, the national emblem of France, symbolizing liberty. From 1984 to 1997 she hosted 7 sur 7, France’s most popular Sunday evening news show, similar to CBS’s 60 Minutes. During that time she interviewed many world figures, including Bill Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev, Shimon Peres, and Prince Charles. She is the author of numerous bestsellers in France.
