From the release:
Marjorie Williams (1958- 2005) knew Washington from top to bottom. Beloved for her sharp analysis, elegant prose and exceptional ability to intuit character, she wrote political profiles for The Washington Post and Vanity Fair that came to be considered the final word on the capital’s most powerful figures. She also penned a weekly column for the Post’s op-ed page, extending beyond politics to tackle topics including gender, family life,, and — during the last years of her life–mortality. She is survived by her husband Tim Noah, a senior writer at Slate, who is joined at this event by Ruth Marcus and Elizabeth Kastor of the Washington Post, and Former Lt. Governor of Maryland Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, in a reading celebrating the life and writings of Marjorie Williams.
