Monday, February 7, 2005 | 12:00 a.m. CST; updated 3:36 a.m. CDT, Monday, July 7, 2008

Columbia is about to get a dose of big-city glamour. Lyah Beth LeFlore, a Stephens College graduate and author of “Cosmopolitan Girls,” is visiting Stephens this week.

“Cosmopolitan Girls” marks her debut as a novelist and has been touted as an African-American woman’s answer to the HBO series “Sex and the City.” On Tuesday, LeFlore will speak about her recent experience with the publishing industry and her work in television as part of Black History Month.

The free public lecture and book signing will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Historic Senior Hall, 100 Waugh St.

In addition to the lecture, LeFlore will speak to mass media and creative writing classes at Stephens, hold a question-and-answer session with students and will be on hand at Dali’s restaurant, 10 Southampton Drive, for a meet-and-greet at 7 p.m. Thursday.

For information, contact Sarah Berghorn, 876-7111.
