Oscars 2012: Christopher Hitchens honored by Vanity Fair

Christopher Hitchens

Writer Christopher Hitchens, who died in December, will get a fitting tribute from Vanity Fair, where he was a contributing editor, at the magazine's star-studded Oscars party.

Editor in Chief Graydon Carter will welcome 130 guests for a private dinner and telecast viewing at the Sunset Tower Hotel, where Carter included a small touch in Hitchens' memory.

Each table will hold a lighter engraved with the Hitchens quote, "Everyone has a book inside them, which is exactly where I think it should, in most cases, remain." The writer passed away Dec. 15 after a battle with cancer.
