VIRTUAL EVENT: Justine Bateman – 92Y


PLEASE NOTE: All of our virtual events are listed in Eastern Time (ET).

Join filmmaker and author Justine Bateman, in conversation with actress Carrie-Anne Moss, about her new book, Face: One Square Foot of Skin — an innovative exploration of beauty, evolution, and the cultural response to women as they age.

Examining the social pressures exerted on women to “fix” their faces as they get older, Bateman uncovers surprising and difficult truths about our society’s obsession with youth. Hear her and Moss discuss the book’s genesis, what she learned while writing it, how the entertainment industry’s obsessions with beauty has changed since her former acting career began on Family Ties, her upcoming film projects, and more.

Tickets ($10) are required to attend this event; access to the event link will be provided after purchase. Please visit the 92nd Street Y’s website to learn more or to register.
