Women in Journalism: Behind The Scenes & On the Big Screen

Q&A with journalists Lisa Belkin, Allison Gilbert, and Pamela Paul

Join us for a lively conversation about the status of women in journalism — back in Elsie Robinson’s time (1920s-1950s), and today. Allison Gilbert, whose new book is the first biography of Hearst nationally syndicated newspaper columnist Elsie Robinson, will be joined by Lisa Belkin, former columnist for The New York Times, and Pamela Paul, The New York Times Opinion columnist and former editor of The New York Times Book Review.

Before the discussion, enjoy the 1940 classic His Girl Friday, a rapid-fire screwball comedy featuring reporter Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell) who spars with her ex-husband and editor (Cary Grant).

Books from each of the guests will be available for sale following the discussion, courtesy of The Village Bookstore.
