Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins
Sep 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins

Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins tells the story of media firebrand Molly Ivins who took on the “Good Old Boy” corruption wherever she found it.  Intimidatingly brilliant and quintessentially Texan, Ivins was politically blue in a scarlet red state and unabashedly brash in her famously lauded political assessments. A workaholic, she traded conventional relationships and intimacy for beer, a solid typewriter, and boots made for muckraking. She dedicated four decades of her signature, droll wit to tackling corruption, defending free speech, and making all the right frenemies. Her razor sharp wit left both sides of the aisle laughing, and craving ink in her columns. She knew the Bill of Rights was in peril, and said that “polarizing people is a good way to win an election and a good way to wreck a country.” Molly’s words have proved prescient. Now it’s up to us to raise hell!
