Wow! Both speakers were so interesting, and a great moderator. Free, cold white wine, too - thanks CC! Seating is hotel-conference-like - so get there early to snag a decent one. 'Hard to find the actual event room the first time - so allow time for that, too. Buy book ahead, if you can, for a bargain - but they didn't "up" the price at the event, either. He was only able to sign books, not other items, due to time constraints. A really great event and a bargain. Thanks, GS!

In conversation with Phil Bronstein, Editor at Large, Hearst Newspapers
Legendary Hustler publisher Flynt is seen as a pro-sexuality trailblazer to some folks, but for others he’s the source for sex scandal and smut. Yet for three decades, Flynt has been a symbol of sexual freedom, crusading for First Amendment rights and against political hypocrisy. His landmark Supreme Court case, Hustler Magazine v. Falwell, is taught in law schools. Now, Flynt and Columbia historian Eisenbach have teamed up to tackle America’s sexual mores past and present, as well as the evolving role of the press as truth-seeking opinion-shapers. Join us as the fearless Flynt takes a look at freedom of expression, sexual politics and privacy.
