Nora Ephron on Her Generation

07/12/2012 05:11 pm ET | Updated Sep 11, 2012

We're remembering with gratitude the fifteen times Nora Ephron graced the 92Y stage.

She talked about filmmaking, writing, women, aging, politics, AIDS, the differences between men and women and much more, bringing her distinctive wit and perception to issues that frequently vex and trouble us.

She first came to 92Y forty years ago as part of a panel discussion on women writers and made her last appearance just last fall, as part of an Andy Borowitz event celebrating his book on America's Funniest Writers. We're sharing a clip from an event we posted earlier where she talks about the women's movement of the early 1970s and the huge impact of divorce becoming a viable option for women. As always, she combines sensitivity and insight with humor.

We'll miss her voice.
