Event Details

Please join us Monday, March 2nd, 7:30pm at the Paradise Theatre for the uproariously funny, inspiring documentary on the journalistic hero Molly Ivins. RAISE HELL: The Life And Times of Molly Ivins tells the story of media firebrand Molly Ivins. Often compared to Mark Twain, Ivins was six feet of Texas trouble who, despite her Houston pedigree, took on Good Old Boy corruption wherever she found it. Bestselling author, Pulitzer Prize nominated journalist, popular TV pundit, Molly had a nation of “fans” and “frenemies.” She courageously spoke truth to power and it cost her more than once.

Find out how one woman informed the public and spoke for so many.

“Politics is not a picture on a wall or a television sitcom that you can decide you don’t much care for… politics is not about those people in Washington, those people in your state capitol… this country is run by us, it is our deal, we run this country, we are the board of directors, we own it, they are just the people we’ve hired to drive the bus for a while.”

                                               — Molly Ivins, Mother Jones, May/June 1993

This event is brought to you by CHC and is by $10 donation.
