Alex Kuczynski is scheduled to speak at the Medill School of Journalism at 12 pm on Monday, November 12 2007 in Fisk hall.
I picked up on it from a weekly newsletter I get, Flavorpill, which describes Kuczynski, saying:
“For some, the Critical Shopper columnist is bafflingly superficial, an over-privileged aesthete who sullies the paper’s reputation with conspicuous consumption and the jet-set lifestyles of the ultra-rich. Others simply see her as a shrewd and pragmatic businesswoman. After all, she delivers what people want — high-end shopping tips, luxury-product critiques, and the best place to buy a $5,000 chinchilla coat.”
I’ll be attending, so if you have any questions regarding Kuczynski, her work, or reporting on popular culture, let me know.
