Update: Camille Paglia at SCAD cancelled

The reading set for tomorrow night by Camille Paglia has been cancelled becuse the author couldn’t get a flight out because of Hurricane Sandy. We’ll let you know when we hear about a new date.

Controversial social critic Camille Paglia, best-selling author of Sexual Personae and Sex, Art & American Culture, will make a rare appearance in Atlanta on Tuesday, Oct. 30, to discuss her latest book,  Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars.

From Queen Nefertari’s ancient tomb to George Lucas’s Revenge of the Sith, Paglia examines more than two dozen paintings, sculptures, architectural styles, performance pieces, and digital art work that have influenced what and how we see.
