A special evening with a true American original. Purveyor of urban cool and witty chronicler of the “me decade,” cultural satirist Fran Lebowitz remains one of today’s foremost advocates of the extreme statement. She offers insights on timely issues such as gender, race, gay rights and the media, as well as her own pet peeves – including celebrity culture, tourists and baby strollers. Both in print and in person, Lebowitz is pointed, taut, economical and unapologetically opinionated. A former columnist for Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine, Lebowitz has written two New York Times best-selling books of essays and a children’s book.
