    • Fashion & Beauty

Listen to author and critic Erica Wagner in conversation with Selby Wynn Schwartz, writer of “After Sappho”, her first novel published by Galley Beggar Press in 2022. Together, they talk about her insatiable appetite for literature as a child and the way it led her to becoming a writer. They also evoke Lina Poletti, Sarah Bernhardt, Virginia Woolf or even Nathalie Barney, the women artists who inspired “After Sappho”, the book in which Selby Wynn Schwartz pays tribute to them.

As part of the Rendez-vous littéraires rue Cambon [Literary Rendezvous at Rue Cambon], the podcast "les Rencontres" highlights the birth of a writer in a series imagined by CHANEL and House ambassador and spokesperson Charlotte Casiraghi.
