About your host

I am a translator, writer, and editor based in Paris. Winner of the Ezra Pound Award for poetry in translation, I was an official translator at the 2012 Poetry Parnassus in London, an assembly of poets from all the Olympic nations in the lead-up the London Olympic Games. I love Paris, literature, and the Lost Generation and looking forward to sharing those passions with you.

Join us as we explore the Paris that enchanted Hemingway as a young man. We'll follow in his footsteps through the Latin Quarter, immersing ourselves in the lost generation of American writers and reliving the 1920's as we summon inspiration to jot…
