In 1988, I discovered Simone de Beauvoir, and fell in love with her and what was happening in the literary world in Paris. And, why I love Café de Flore so much! I recently saw this quote pop up on one of my social media sites which inspired me to dig into some of her most memorable books. There are wonderful stories written about Simone, her relationships go-to places in Paris. She was an amazing, strong women who believed in the strength of women in our world. Simone goes down in history as one of the most memorable artists of the 50’s which includes Hemingway, Miller, Picasso, Sartre and so many more. I so admire her intellect, elegance, and passion. She was a feminist, writer, political activist and a lover of writing.
