Join us for a lecture by Dye Family Professor of Music, Emeritus, Stephen Kelly. In the summer of 1925, Harold Ross, the editor of a new magazine, called The New Yorker, hired a spirited young woman, only a few years out of Vassar, to take over a night-club column.

During the following five years, writing under the name “Lipstick,” she produced over one hundred of these columns, which provide richly textured description of the entertainment and social world of the Roaring Twenties. This presentation examines “Lipstick’s” columns and attempts to place them into the wider history of “jazz age” culture.

Light refreshments will be served. 

Cost:  $10 per person. Space is limited. Reserve your spot online by April 25
