What: Inprint Poets & Writers Ball.

Where: The Houstonian.

Who: Chairs Phoebe and Bobby Tudor; keynote speaker Tony Kushner, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Angels in America, Munich, Lincoln); Inprint executive director Rich Levy; chairman of the board of directors Consuelo Duroc-Danner; president of the board of directors Christina Bryan; Eleanor and Dan Gilbane, Andrea and Bill White, and author Chitra Divakaruni.

PC Moment: From PaperCity features and digital editor James Brock: “The Inprint Poets & Writer’s Ball was a great event. In addition to a long and enthralling (and very humorous) keynote address by Tony Kushner that touched on everything from food to politics, family ties (Kushner’s parents were friends with Phoebe Tudor’s parents in Louisiana and beyond, a topic that he mentioned with grace and affection) and the crucial role that art and the written word play in our society, Robin Davidson, Matthew Salesses, and Leah Lax read from their works. The latter recounted a devastating and ultimately liberating tale of her journey into and out of Hasidism and her coming out as a lesbian. Get her book, Uncovered, and read it. Then, join Inprint.”

Home, chic home.
