The event description reads "Hilton Als, The New Yorker’s boldest cultural critic, deftly weaves together his brilliant analyses of literature, art, and music with fearless insights on race, gender, and history. The result is an extraordinary, complex portrait of “white girls,” as Als dubs them—an expansive but precise category that encompasses figures as diverse as Truman Capote and Louise Brooks, Malcolm X and Flannery O’Connor. Hear Hilton discuss his book at the San Francisco Main Library."
The event runs from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m in the Koret Auditorium, Main Library, at 100 Larkin St. in San Francisco. More info at http://sfpl.org/index.php?pg=1016187601
