Fran Lebowitz in Conversation

Massey Hall presents

“I’m not a contrarian, I just know I’m right—there’s a difference.” The iconic New York City writer Fran Lebowitz is opinionated. And her incredible insight and hilarious matter-of-fact observations have challenged and entertained since she burst onto the literary scene in the mid-70s after Andy Warhol hired her as a columnist for Interview magazine. Author of two New York Times Best-Selling books (Metropolitan Life and Social Studies), Lebowitz is the subject of a 2010 documentary directed by Martin Scorsese, titled Public Speaking. The cultural satirist tackles wide-ranging subjects and is as entertaining as she is thought-provoking.

Following her conversation with Jian Ghomeshi, Lebowitz will be taking questions from the audience.
