Vidal's “United States: Essays 1952-1992” won the 1993 National Book Award.

Gore Vidal was born in 1925, the scion of a prominent political family. But during his life he has been and is an outspoken critic of the American Political Establishment and he's noted for his wit as a social critic.

He wrote the groundbreaking The City and the Pillar in 1948, which outraged mainstream critics as the first major American novel to feature unambiguous homosexuality.

Mr. Vidal has worked tirelessly for peace and justice. He is Al Gore's cousin and Jimmy Carter's 5th cousin.

Join with us on Friday, April 18 for this once-in-a-lifetime evening with one of the great figures in American Literary History.

Mr. Vidal and I used to share the same publisher, Thunder's Mouth Press, an imprint of Avalon Publishing (now defunct after a controversial 2007 bankruptcy of the parent company, PGW). I met him at the publisher's office in 2002 for a launch party of one of his books. If it is not about him, it does not exist in his world.
