An Evening with Author Jenny Lawson

Register for this funny evening with bestselling author and humorist Jenny Lawson. She'll discuss her most recent memoir, Broken (in the best possible way), and her brilliantly funny body of work.

Lawson is a journalist, author, and blogger known for her great candor in sharing her struggle with mental illness. Her previous books Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy were #1 New York Times bestsellers. 

She will be joined in conversation with R. Eric Thomas, bestselling author, award-winning playwright, and screenwriter. His book Here for It: Or, How to Save Your Soul in America was featured as a Read with Jenna pick on NBC’s Today.
