My guest this week is Sarah Horowitz, professor of history at W&L University, where she is also head of the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies program. Her latest novel is "The Red Widow,” the so-insane-it’s-nearly-unbelievable true story of Marguerite (“Meg”) Steinheil. In her lifetime, Meg was a high society socialite, a sex worker, a Presidential mistress, and maybe, just maybe, a murderer.

In our delightful conversation, Sarah shares her research and her views on what Meg’s story says about French culture and identity, the Belle Epoque, its impact on both historic and contemporary France, and so much more. Then, she treats us to a reading from “The Red Widow.”

About Us
Since well before Victor Hugo looked up at Notre Dame and thought, "Huh... what if a hunchback lived in there?" authors have been inspired by Paris. The Storytime in Paris podcast will help keep this tradition alive with short interviews and readings from your favorite contemporary authors with a French connection.
 
Every episode will feature five questions, asked by you, our authors' biggest fans, and answered live on air. Then, our authors will treat us to a reading of an excerpt from their book. Who knows? Maybe you'll even be inspired to write your own Great French Novel. Happy listening!
