Session No. 71 

‘Because you are defined not by life's imperfect moments, but by your reaction to them. And because there is joy in embracing – rather than running from – the utter absurdity of life.’Jenny Lawson

Whether she’s speaking from her award-winning blog, or the top of the New York Times bestseller list, Jenny Lawson’s irreverent writing style is a balm for anyone feeling a bit ‘broken’. The journalist, author and humorist responsible for memoir hits, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy, is back with another collection of darkly humourous essays in Broken that are both entertaining and a brutally honest look at living with mental illness.

Come and hear Jenny Lawson’s refreshing take on depression and anxiety through a magical mystery tour of anecdotes relating to health insurance, taxidermy and why she can never go to the post office again.

This conversation will be moderated by Allison K Williams. The author of Get Published in Literary Magazines and Seven Drafts: Self-Edit Like a Pro From Blank Page to Book, Allison is also a former circus performer, the Social Media Editor for Brevity where she inspires thousands of writers with blogs on craft, and has written for NPR, CBC, the New York Times, McSweeney’s, and more.

Jenny Lawson will now be appearing virtually.
