This year’s benefit featured the humorist and social commentator Fran Lebowitz, offering her views on current events, the media, and writing—as well as her extensive list of pet peeves, including baggage claim, adults who roller skate, and children who speak French. Known for her urbane and acerbic wit, Lebowitz has been called by The New York Times Book Review an “important humorist in the classic tradition.”
Fran’s talk was in conversation with Don Gilpin, Journalist with Town Topics and beloved former English teacher at West Windsor. The benefit evening included a Benefactor’s Reception, talk, and a seated dinner and silent auction for 400 guests at Princeton University’s Lewis Arts Complex, the first community-sponsored event in the University’s new complex.
