Alumnus and Writer Christopher Buckley To Read From Memoir ‘Losing Mum and Pup’
Satirical novelist, political commentator and memoirist Christopher Buckley will read from and discuss his bestselling memoir, “Losing Mum and Pup,” on Thursday, Feb. 18.
Buckley’s reading, which is free and open to the public, will take place at 8 p.m. in the Branford College common room, 74 High Street. The event is part of Yale College’s series of Francis Conversations with Writers and Editors.
Buckley has been the managing editor of Esquire Magazine, the chief speechwriter for then-Vice President George H.W. Bush and a columnist for the National Review.
His novels include “Thank You for Smoking” (which was made into a 2005 film), “Boomsday” and “Supreme Courtship.” Tom Wolfe has called Buckley “one of the funniest writers in the English language.”
