Piggy isn’t home this week. She’s in New York, where, on June 4, she will be honored at the Sackler Center First Awards at the Brooklyn Museum. The ceremony will include her acceptance speech – which we have been polishing relentlessly – a 20 minute video retrospective of her career, and an onstage interview with Gloria Steinem.
According to the official press release, the Sackler Center First Awards “celebrates women who have broken gender barriers and made remarkable contributions in their fields.” Previous recipients include Anita Hill, Sandra Day O’Connor, Connie Chung, and Toni Morrison, among others.
Kermit the Frog will be in the audience to witness this honor.
