Events An Evening With Fran Lebowitz

Boffins Books is excited to be the offical bookseller at the event presented by FANE and the Perth Concert Hall to host celebrated comedian and author Fran Lebowitz.  

In a cultural landscape teeming with self-proclaimed experts and incessant chatter, Fran Lebowitz, a force to be reckoned with possessing an unparalleled ability to dissect life with biting precision, reigns supreme with scathing and insightful social commentary.

Lebowitz will take to the stage for one night to share her invariably cutting take on anything and everything; from growing up in New Jersey and being expelled from her high school for being a “pernicious influence” on her peers, to moving to New York City in the 70’s, and writing a column for Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. She’ll offer insights on such timely issues as gender, race, gay rights, and the media just to name a few topics. Moreover, she will engage in her favourite recreational activity: unleashing her razor wit on the audience in a 60-minute Q&A. 

An American original and purveyor of urban cool, a cultural satirist and author, unapologetically opinionated, and known for her hilariously dry social commentary on American life, Lebowitz's show promises to be a balm in a wildly shifting world. Do not miss it.

Fran Lebowitz will be joined on stage by celebrated journalist and presenter Jenna Clarke for the in-conversation portion of the event, before single-handedly taking on the audience Q&A.

 Fran will be signing copies of her book The Fran Lebowitz Reader after the show. Books are available to purchase on the night.

Please note: Parental discretion is advised.
