The Barbizon: The Hotel That Set Women Free
The Barbizon became the residential hotel of choice for many of the most celebrated women artists after it opened in 1927, including Sylvia Plath, Liza Minelli, and Joan Didion. The legendary hotel provided a place for these women to thrive and live on their own. Paulina Bren touches on these luminary figures, along with the women whose time at the Barbizon was not all dreams realized. It wasn’t until 1981 that men were allowed in, forever changing the landmark of female independence. You can also check out this title as eBook on OverDrive/Libby or as eAudio on OverDrive/Libby.
