Here’s a last-minute pick for tonight with Cathie Black the first woman publisher of a weekly when she took over the cheeky New York Magazine in 1979. She’s touting her book “Basic Black” — an account of her 40-year career, which currently includes heading Hearst Magazines and developing such trifling pubs as Cosmopolitan, Town & Country, The Oprah Magazine (which I like to call Oprah’s Ode to Herself) , Esquire and Good Housekeeping. It should be a hoot with Arianna Huffington asking the questions. The event begins 8 p.m. at the City Arts and Lectures, Hearst Theater, 401 Van Ness. The Web site is www.cityarts.net and the phone is (415) 392-4400. Tickets are $19/CBO.
