Join authors Lynn Miller and Therese Dolan as they discuss their new publication, Salut! France Meets Philadelphia (Temple University Press) with Martha Lucy, Deputy Director for Research, Interpretation, and Education at The Barnes Foundation.
Salut! chronicles the French presence in Philadelphia’s history, culture, art, and food. The authors trace the French influence from colonial and revolutionary times to the contributions of nineteenth-century French philanthropists, such as Stephen Girard and the Dupont family, to the art that graces the city and its museums.
Salut! provides a magnifique history of Philadelphia seen through a particular cultural lens.
