About the event

Much has changed since Camille Paglia burst onto the scene with her best-selling Sexual Personae, but her laser-sharp insight, matchless wit, and fearless commentary continue to be ahead of the curve—not only capturing the tone of the moment, but often anticipating it. Ever an intellectual firebrand, Paglia shares her always provocative takes on religion, the rise of the right, the state of LGBTQ activism, presidents past and present, and more, in her newest book, Provocations, a collection of essays, articles, columns, and interviews drawn from the full span of her wide-ranging and important career as a public intellectual.
