According to Howard Szigeti, founder of the Unique Lives and Experiences lecture series almost twenty years ago in Toronto, its a girl thing: The overall spirit of the concept is to bring compelling female role models to speak to a room filled nearly exclusively with women, he says. Women talking to women has always been the mission. And it seems like a good formula. The series, a recurring event in Denver for eleven years now, continues to bring marvelous women to town, making each lecture what Szigeti calls Monday Night Football for women. Right. Give that a moments thought and youll know exactly what he means.
Grab your girlfriend, then, and get ready to bond over tonights lecture with CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour, a true woman of the world whos a familiar face no matter where shes broadcasting from, and her husband, James Rubin, a fellow journalist and former assistant secretary of state for foreign affairs. And notice that Rubin is the secondary speaker. Thats all you need to know.
Amanpour and Rubin speak at 7:30 p.m. at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Performing Arts Complex; call 1-877-872-8124 for tickets or visit www.uniquelives.com.
