Nora Ephron on Her Generation
Today we’re remembering with gratitude the fifteen times Nora Ephron graced our stage. She talked here about filmmaking, writing, women, aging, politics, AIDS, the differences between men and women and much more, bringing her distinctive wit and perception to issues that frequently vex and trouble us. She first came here forty years ago as part of a panel discussion on women writers and made her last appearance just last fall, as part of an Andy Borowitz event celebrating his book on America’s Funniest Writers. We’re sharing another clip from an event we posted earlier where she talks about the women’s movement of the early 1970s and the huge impact of divorce becoming a viable option for women. As always, she combines sensitivity and insight with humor. We’ll miss her voice.
