Joan Keefe will show video clips of French icon Edith Piaf singing on Parisian stages as she traces Piaf's tragic life: her early abandonment and poverty, her lost loves, and finally, her songs, her songwriters, and her love affair with her audiences. Joan Keefe has taught college-level French for many years. She has lectured on Edith Piaf in a variety of settings including the Smithsonian, the Corcoran Museum, Georgetown University and the University of Maryland.
