VIRTUAL EVENT: Jonny Sun, Goodbye, Again

May 3, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

FREE VIRTUAL EVENT: Jonny Sun, the wonderfully original author of Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too, will be in conversation with writer and comedian Demi Adejuyigbe about Goodbye, Again, Sun’s new collection of touching and hilarious personal essays, stories, poems—accompanied by his trademark illustrations—covering topics such as mental health, happiness, and what it means to belong. 

“This poetic, humorous, and heartfelt collection will have readers nodding along, laughing, and maybe even crying, but more than anything they will be engrossed and craving more. Similar to Sun’s previous work, this is another standout.” —Library Journal, starred review

Jonny Sun is back with a collection of essays and other writings in his unique, funny, and heartfelt style. The pieces range from long meditations on topics like loneliness and being an outsider, to short humor pieces, conversations, and memorable one-liners.

Jonny’s honest writings about his struggles with feeling productive, as well as his difficulties with anxiety and depression will connect deeply with his fans as well as anyone attempting to create in our chaotic world.

It also features a recipe for scrambled eggs that might make you cry.
