Don’t miss this rare and wildly unexpected opportunity. One of America’s most provocative intellectuals and self-proclaimed “Amazon feminist” Camille Paglia will join Andy Cohen, an Emmy Award-winning host, producer and New York Times best-selling author.
Ever since the release of her seminal first book, “Sexual Personae,” Camille Paglia (who currently serves as the university professor of humanities and media studies at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she has taught since 1984) has remained one of feminism’s most outspoken, independent and searingly intelligent voices. Now for the first time, her best essays on the subject are gathered together in one concise volume entitled “Free Women, Free Men,” which both celebrates modern feminism and challenges us to build an alliance of strong women and strong men. Paglia and Cohen, who are longtime fans of one another, will discuss their personal and professional endeavors, their mutual interest in “The Real Housewives” and the pervasive issues affecting men and women in today’s tumultuous times. New York Times Op-Ed columnist Frank Bruni will moderate the conversation.
