Public Speaking

    The very witty Fran Lebowitz joins this morning to talk about her stop at The Mahaiwe in Great Barrington, MA on August 9th, her love of public speaking, and dread of writing.

Lebowitz is the author of two classic books of essays, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies and she was the subject of the documentary film, Public Speaking, directed by Martin Scorsese.
