Ladies of Letters: Dorothy Parker, Edna Ferber, Lillian Hellman -- A Tell-All Conversation

January 24, 2014  11:30 AM

Journalist, writer, critic and poet, Dorothy Parker, was a legendary literary figure known for her acid-tongued barbs. She was also a fixture and founding member of the Algonquin Hotel’s “Round Table,” famous for hosting the wittiest debates and banter. Edna Ferber, also an Algonquin Round Table regular, was a well-known writer of short stories, novels and plays, including Dinner at Eight and Show Boat. A leading playwright and motion picture screenwriter, Lillian Hellman’s dramas (The Children’s Hour, The Little Foxes, Watch on the Rhine) forcefully attacked injustice, exploitation and selfishness. Join Julie Gilbert and Lee Wolf as they examine these literary tastemakers who sparked a new era of creativity in American culture. This lecture will be accompanied by a video presentation.
