Online Evening Literary Seminar: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Jenny Lawson

November 9, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PST

Jenny Lawson’s ridiculously eccentric childhood in Texas—combined with a hefty dose of anxiety, depression and serious intelligence—makes for a hilariously dark memoir that will bring the comic relief we might all need in November. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened feels like a Mary Karr-David Sedaris-Amy Poehler mash-up, a look at how to cope when things are just plain absurd. It would be a crime during this Covid fall NOT to turn to Lawson for commiseration, solace and some much-needed laughs.

Join Kimberly to delve deeper into a novel that has been described as “transformed by intragenerational retelling rather than passed down,” one made up of “quick and dirty mythmaking,” a book we should all be reading now.
