Join biographer Anne de Courcy for an evening in celebration of her brand new book “Five Love Affairs and a Friendship: the Paris life of Nancy Cunard”.
Dazzlingly beautiful, highly intelligent and an extraordinary force of energy, Nancy Cunard was an icon of the Jazz Age, said to have inspired half the poets and novelists of the twenties. Born into a life of wealth and privilege, yet one in which she barely saw her parents, Nancy rebelled against expectations and pursued a life in the arts. She sought the constant company of artists, writers, poets and painters, first in London's Soho and Mayfair, and then in the glamorous cafes of 1920s Paris.
This evening, Anne de Courcy discusses with Anne Chisholm, herself a biographer of Nancy Curnard, the remarkable story of Nancy's Paris life and the glittering world of the 1920s Jazz Age.
Hatchards is thrilled to present this event in collaboration with the Biographers’ Club.
