Jul 22, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
A fresh and provocative debut novel about a reclusive young woman saving up for weight loss surgery when she gets drawn into a shadowy feminist guerilla group called “Jennifer”—equal parts Bridget Jones’s Diary and Fight Club
Comedian, writer, blogger, radio and podcast host, and YouTube sensation, Sara Benincasa bravely and outrageously brings us “Dispatches from My Bedroom” with Agorafabulous!One of the funniest and most poignant books ever written about a mental illness, Agorafabulous! is a hilarious, raw, and unforgettable account of how a terrified young woman, literally trapped by her own imagination, evolved into a (relatively) high-functioning professional smartass. Down to earth and seriously funny, Benincasa’s no-holds-barred revelations offer readers the politically incorrect hilarity they heartily crave, yet is so often missing from your typical, weepy, and redemptive personal memoir.
Sara Benincasa is the author of Agorafabulous! (which was based on her one-woman show). Sara has received much acclaim as a comedian and memoirist and is now turning to YA fiction.
