Obsession: Lewis Lapham on Smoking

Longtime editor Lewis Lapham—who helmed Harper’s for three decades—is also a longtime smoker. He will discuss the virtues of smoking and his love of the act, despite its faults and much-maligned reputation. A psychoanalyst will join him onstage. (No, not his!)

(Doors open at 8pm. Event from 9PM-10PM. Bar will remain open from 10PM-12AM after the event)

Hosted by Katie Halper
