OFF-SITE: Kings Theatre
Saturday, October 21, 8:00 PM
Show and Tell presents Fran Lebowitz
Tickets starting at $60 (book not included)
Doors open 7:00 PM
In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators. Her essays and interviews offer her acerbic views on current events and the media – as well as pet peeves including tourists, baggage-claim areas, after-shave lotion, adults who roller skate, children who speak French, or anyone who is unduly tan. The New York Times Book Review calls Lebowitz an "important humorist in the classic tradition." Purveyor of urban cool, Lebowitz is a cultural satirist whom many call the heir to Dorothy Parker.
Greenlight Bookstore will offer copies of The Fran Lebowitz Reader and other titles onsite at the event.
