Virtual Author Event with Jenny Lawson

Tuesday, May 17 at 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Jenny Lawson in conversation with her comedic foil/husband Victor to celebrate the paperback launch of the New York Times bestseller Broken (in the best possible way).

Holt is honored to present, for the first time ever, an evening with Jenny Lawson in conversation with her comedic foil/husband Victor to celebrate the paperback launch of the New York Times bestseller Broken (in the best possible way). Join us on May 17 at 7 PM CT (8pm EST) on Zoom Webinar to discuss her most personal book yet. The conversation will be followed by moderated audience Q&A. 

Jenny Lawson is an award-winning humorist known for her great candor in sharing her struggle with mental illness. She 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 also wrote You Are Here, which inexplicably made it onto the New York Times bestseller list in spite of the fact that it was basically a very fun coloring book. She would like to be your friend unless you’re a real asshole. And yes, she realizes that this whole paragraph is precisely the reason she shouldn’t be allowed to write her own bio.

Victor Lawson is a successful business man who has been married to Jenny for 25 years and still hasn’t figured her out. Some would call that “keeping the mystery in a relationship.” He agrees but would still like to know a few things, including why he just opened a box of eyeballs. Although Jenny is known for her written humor, most people agree that Victor is the funny one IRL, which is very confusing to everyone involved.  

This free event will be hosted on Zoom by Holt; patrons will receive links directly from them before the event. This is event is not hosted by the Avon Library; we are connecting with other libraries and booksellers to bring this event to our patrons.
