LBC Presents

Fran Lebowitz

Thursday, February 17, 2022 at 7:30 PM

$39 & $55

In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, author and journalist, 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.

A new limited documentary series, Pretend It’s a City, directed by Martin Scorsese, premiered on Netflix January 8, 2021.

MODERATOR: Karin Demarest has lived in six states, four countries, and traveled over five continents. But Karin will tell you that the art of listening to and engaging a speaker, and of knowing just the question the audience wants answered, comes from her early years of riding public transit, tending bar, and working in theater companies. Karin’s ability to build an easy, warm rapport with speakers and to facilitate compelling discussion has made her a favorite to moderate panels and Q&A’s on a wide range of topics. Karin has had the opportunity to interview extraordinary leaders and change-makers, including:

  • Sir Ken Robinson, best-selling author, speaker, and Advisor to the British Government on Arts and Education;
  • Philanthropy innovator Dan Pallota, founder of the AIDS Ride and the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk;
  • Dr. Christopher Edwin, Columbia’s Director of Science Education, best-selling author, and creator of the #HipHopEd social media movement;
  • Sugata Mitra, professor of education technology and winner of the TED Prize 2013;
  • Nirvan Mullick, writer and filmmaker, best known for directing the viral documentary short “Caine’s Arcade;”
  • International disaster recovery expert Dr. Laurie Johnson; and
  • California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye.
