A stop at TheBloggess.com typically leaves us laughing out loud or asking, somewhat uncomfortably, “What the ... ?”
That’s what Jenny Lawson, author of the popular blog, does best: irreverent satire that leaves readers alternately baffled, appalled or flat-out guffawing.
An Internet sensation who also writes three online columns (one about parenting), Lawson is a newly minted book author, too. She visits Aug. 11 at Changing Hands Bookstore with her No. 1 New York Times Bestselling debut, “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.”
In the book, Lawson, a Texan, takes readers through the mortifying moments that have shaped her. Chapter names lend a clue to the kind of bizarre storytelling and sardonic wit readers are in for, including “Stanley the Magical, Talking Squirrel,” “A Series of Angry Post-It Notes to My Husband,” and “And Then I Snuck a Dead Cuban Alligator on an Airplane.”
Tickets to the event are free when you buy the book from Changing Hands.
