Lindy West presents The Witches Are Coming
Tickets $30 (includes seat and book)
Lindy West – firebrand New York Times columnist and author of the critically acclaimed memoir and Hulu TV series Shrill – provides a laugh-out-loud, incisive cultural critique that answers the fundamental question of this hellish political moment – how did we get here? – by dissecting the films, television series, internet phenomena, and lifestyle gurus that have taught us who we are. In order to build a just and livable future, West says, we need to first break apart the myths we've been telling ourselves about ourselves (and each other) for generations, the assumptions we swallow as fact (and the facts we deny), and reckon with all the dark truths we've long left unexamined. At once side-splittingly funny and irresistibly thought-provoking, The Witches Are Coming gives us all the kindling we need to burn our restrictive and outdated social norms to the ground. West presents her new book at St. Joseph’s College as part of the Brooklyn Voices Series.
Each $30 ticket includes admission to the event, as well as a hardcover copy of The Witches are Coming; books are distributed at the event, and additional books are for sale. Lindy West will sign books following the discussion.
