I’ve gotten to know Edith Wharton quite a bit over the course of writing 100 Places in France Every Woman Should Go. It was therefore a privilege to discuss her with two formidable women in their own right, Lavinia Spalding and Colleen Kinder at Wharton’s home in Lenox, Massachusetts. The occasion was the reissue of A Motor Flight Through France by the visionary publisher, Restless Books . Lavinia wrote a gorgeous introduction to this new edition, and invited me to join her on the panel.

My friends Lavinia and Colleen are both gloriously talented writers. Our conversation was about women, travel writing, and of course Mrs. Wharton.
