The inimitable Fran Lebowitz will appear at a special screening of Public Speaking, Martin Scorsese's 2010 documentary about her career. Andy Warhol gave Lebowitz her big break by hiring her to pen a column for Interview magazine, and she has since become a popular author offering insights on timely issues of gender, race and gay rights, not to mention her pet peeves, from celebrity culture to smoking bans to strollers. Thursday, May 12, at 7 p.m. AFI Silver Theatre, 8633 Colesville Road, Silver Spring. Tickets are $15 general admission. Call 301-495-6720 or visit afi.com/Silver.
