Harriet Welty Rochefort, Author
Harriet Welty Rochefort is an author, speaker, freelance journalist, former professor of journalism at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po) and longtime resident of France.
Harriet has written three books light-hearted, informative on the French and their ways. They are French Toast, French Fried, and Joie de Vivre, all published by St. Martin’s Press. Her latest book, to be published this year, is a historical novel that takes place in Paris and southwest France during World War II.
A French-American dual citizen, Harriet lives with husband Philippe in the trendy east of Paris in a garden apartment with a tiny lawn just big enough to mow and a fig tree that has miraculously defied both Paris weather and pollution.
