Aurore Dudevant (1804-1876), who wrote as George Sand and was considered scandalous by her contemporaries because of her adoption of men’s clothing and non-traditional lifestyle, was a French writer known for her romantic novels.
Emily Lapisardi’s original presentation of Madame Sand focused on her relationship with the composer Frederic Chopin, but subsequent appearances at the Civic Light Opera Academy of Musical Theater (Pittsburgh), the first annual Lafayette Day (Brownsville, Pennsylvania), the Colloquium for Literature and Film at West Virginia University, and at the grand opening of Geezers’ Literary Bookshop have focused on the strong personality of this woman.
A multimedia presentation combining video and historical impersonation from four phases of her life, Profile: George Sand, was given at California University of Pennsylvania and aired on the CUTV television program “Just Interesting.”
