Francoise Nyssen, named today by President Macron as his minister of culture, is the head of Actes Sud, a publishing house founded by her father in Arles.

Nyssen, 66, has a PhD in Molecular Biology and has founded a school for special-needs children.

Not your ordinary politician. And definitely not a luvvie or insider.
