Glynnis MacNicol presents No One Tells You This
In conversation with Anna Holmes
Wine reception to follow
Author and founder of The Li.st Glynnis MacNicol presents No One Tells You This, a fearless and feminist new memoir praised by Rebecca Traister, Aminatou Sow, Jessica Bennett, and more that asks: if the story doesn’t end with marriage or a child, what then? Despite a successful career as a writer, and an exciting life in New York City, at the age of 40 MacNicol was constantly reminded she had neither of the things the world expected of a woman her age: a partner or a baby. Lacking a good blueprint for how to be a woman alone in the world – and refusing a narrative of pity or simplicity – MacNicol creates her own. No One Tells You This is an exhilarating journey of self-discovery and a fearless reckoning with modern womanhood that will resonate with anyone determined to live by their own rules. MacNicol launches her new memoir in conversation with Anna Holmes, writer, editor, and founder of Jezebel, with a wine reception to follow.
