Behind the Pages: A Conversation with William Middleton

THIS COURSE IS FULLY SUBSCRIBED

Double Vision, the long-awaited biography of John and Dominique de Menil, will be published by Knopf in March.  The Houston Seminar will sponsor a unique event to celebrate the book’s release: a private conversation with its author, William Middleton.

Mr. Middleton will provide an insider’s look at the process of writing this biography.  How did he earn the trust of family, friends, colleagues, and institutions…all accustomed to the utmost discretion and, in some instances, secrecy?  It took more than ten years to research and write this book, a long, twisting road from New York to Houston to Paris to Normandy to Alsace to Bucharest to Los Angeles. What were the high points of the process? What were the greatest difficulties? What is not included in the book?

Expect a lively discussion and interchange with the audience.

William Middleton is a journalist and editor who has worked in New York and Paris.
