Kim Kardashian to speak to prestigious Commonwealth Club

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kim Kardashian is joining a prestigious list that includes Teddy Roosevelt, Martin Luther King Jr., Dwight D. Eisenhower, Bill Clinton and Bill Gates.

The 33-year-old reality star is set to speak to the Commonwealth Club next week to discuss her new book of selfies and her famous family, along with "the business of millennial culture, (and) the objectification of women in media."

A spokeswoman for Kardashian describes the event as a book signing. Tickets for her June 30 appearance range from $40, up to $300 for the VIP Party Package.

A spokeswoman for the Commonwealth Club said Wednesday that the event was originally set to be held in Oakland, California, but it will probably be moved to San Francisco's Castro Theatre.

The Commonwealth Club was founded in 1903. It bills itself as the nation's oldest and largest public affairs forum, dedicated to impartial discussion of public issues.
