Literary Rendezvous at Rue Cambon Invite Chantal Thomas — CHANEL Events

For the sixth edition of the Rendez-vous littéraires rue Cambon [Literary Rendezvous at Rue Cambon], the House of CHANEL along with ambassador and spokesperson for the House Charlotte Casiraghi invites writer Chantal Thomas from the Académie française.

Animated by literary historian Fanny Arama, this encounter begins with the presentation of Chantal Thomas’ work which explores a variety of genres — novels, historical accounts, literary essays or chronicles — followed by the reading of an extract from her last book ‘Journal de nage’ by Anamaria Vartolomei. Together, they evoke the liberation of women’s bodies, which is fundamental to the work of Chantal Thomas.
