CHANEL unveils the first two episodes of a new podcast entitled les Rencontres. This new format falls in line with the Rendez-vous littéraires rue Cambon that was established in 2021 by Virginie Viard, Artistic Director of Fashion collections, together with CHANEL ambassador and spokesperson Charlotte Casiraghi.

Each month, a new episode recorded in French or English will turn the spotlight on a contemporary female author who has recently published her first novel.

“This podcast is dedicated to young literary creation,” explains Charlotte Casiraghi. “We wanted to meet authors who have only just started writing novels. By discovering their writing rituals, their daring, their doubts and their sources of inspiration, we hope to encourage other talented young people to get involved in creation.”

Introduced by Charlotte Casiraghi, the conversations are hosted by the journalist Lauren Bastide for the French version, and by the writer and literary critic Erica Wagner for the English version.

The first episode of the French version of the podcast is devoted to French writer Pauline Gonthier and her novel Les oiselles sauvages, published by Julliard in 2021. She talks to Lauren Bastide about the genesis of her writing, her decisive meeting with Annie Ernaux, and reveals her ambition to write books that will make people want to read more.

The American writer Lisa Taddeo, whose first novel Animal was published last year by Simon & Schuster, is the guest for the English version. She talks about her aptitude for fiction, her desire to question what society expects of women as well as the importance of self-criticism within the creative process.
