LPCA Presents An Evening with Fran Lebowitz
In conversation with Ellen Rocco at the Strand Center Theatre
Thursday, October 27, 2022, 7:30 – 10 pm
Join the LPCA at The Strand Theatre in Plattsburgh for this unique conversation with the legendary Fran Lebowitz.
In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, author and journalist, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators.
Her essays and interviews offer her acerbic views on current events and the media – as well as pet peeves including tourists, baggage-claim areas, after-shave lotion, adults who roller skate, children who speak French, or anyone who is unduly tan.
For her North Country debut, Fran will chat with local icon Ellen Rocco and field audience questions. Ellen is the former station manager of North Country Public Radio.

The Thumb Drive which can be used on PCs as well as a Macintosh computer comes on a 16 gigabit thumb drive and there is room for more that can be added by the owner. The price of the thumb drive is $20 plus tax and shipping. Contact the Society HERE to order.
