Monday Matinee: Colette
1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
On the second Monday of the month, join us for a recently released DVD and hot popcorn!
After marrying ‘Willy’, a successful Parisian writer, Colette is transplanted to the intellectual and artistic splendor of Paris. Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite a semi-autobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation, inspiring additional Claudine novels. Colette’s fight over creative ownership and gender roles drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionizing literature, fashion and sexual expression.
