Vanity Fair to Host Christopher Hitchens Memorial
Vanity Fairwill host a memorial for the late Christopher Hitchens this Friday in the Great Hall of Cooper Union. Scheduled to pay tribute in New York are Stephen Fry, Martin Amis, Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan, Christopher Buckley, National Institutes of Health director Francis Collins, and physicist Lawrence Krauss. “In assembling a roster of speakers with deep belief in the power of the written word and the wisdom of nature and the universe, we hope to do an atom of justice to Christopher’s memory,” Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter said.
