Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins

The Music Hall Lounge
131 Congress St.
Portsmouth, NH 03801

Often compared to Mark Twain, media firebrand Molly Ivins was six feet of Texas trouble who, despite her Houston pedigree, took on Good Old Boy corruption wherever she found it. Best-selling 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. But Molly always served up her quality reportage with a heaping dollop of humor. Molly spoke from the heart. She was not a cynic. She gave voice to people who didn’t have one. She called her constituents her “beloveds,” and she never stopped raisin’ hell.
