Kim Kardashian to speak to prestigious Commonwealth Club
Kim Kardashian is joining a prestigious list that includes Teddy Roosevelt, Martin Luther King Jr., Dwight D. Eisenhower, Bill Clinton and Bill Gates.
The 34-year-old reality star is set to speak to San Francisco's venerable Commonwealth Club next week to discuss her new book of selfies and her famous family. Also on the agenda, according to the Commonwealth website, is "the business of millennial culture" and "the objectification of women in media."
Tickets for the June 30 event - described only as "a book signing" by Kardashian's publicist - range from $40 for general admission to $300 for the VIP Party Package.
Kardashian's appearance is sponsored by Glu Mobile Inc., the San Francisco-based video game company that made her megahit mobile game, "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood."
A spokeswoman for the Commonwealth Club said Wednesday that the event was originally set to be held at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California, but it will probably be moved to San Francisco's Castro Theatre.
Founded in 1903, the Commonwealth Club bills itself as the nation's oldest and largest public affairs forum, dedicated to impartial discussion of public issues.
