Event Description

Lecture by Carolyn Burke

Lecture followed by the U.S. Premiere of Piaf intime (Piaf's Secret Story), a new documentary on the life of Édith Piaf by Valérie Exposito, including her visits to New York City (screened in French with English subtitles)

On the eve of the 50-year anniversary of the death of the chanteuse, Carolyn Burke’s illustrated talk weaves together songs, images, reviews, and interviews to evoke the Little Sparrow's years in New York (1947-1957). Biographer (and Columbia Ph.D) Carolyn Burke is the author of the much-praised No Regrets: The Life of Edith Piaf (Alfred Knopf, 2011), to be published in French this fall by Éditions Bartillat.

In the introduction to her talk, Shanny Peer will share original, unpublished archival images and a recorded interview with former Maison Française Director Eugene Sheffer about Edith Piaf's 1947 visit to the Columbia Maison Française on her first trip to the U.S.
