An Evening with Jenny Lawson

March 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE

Join DeKalb Public Library for a virtual evening with award-winning humorist Jenny Lawson as she discusses her most recent bestseller, “Broken (in the best possible way)” and her brilliantly funny body of work.

Jenny is an American journalist, author, and blogger known for her great candor in sharing her struggle with mental illness. “The Bloggess” lives in Texas with her husband and daughter and was constantly “buying too many books” (“Not a real thing,” she insists), so she decided to skip the middleman and just started her own bookshop, which also serves booze because books and booze are what magic is made of. She has previously written “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” and “Furiously Happy,” both of which were #1 New York Times bestsellers. She would like to be your friend unless you’re a real a***hole. (And yes, she realizes this paragraph is precisely the reason she shouldn’t be allowed to write her own bio.)

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration between public libraries offering high-quality events.
