Jenny Lawson

When: Wed., Nov. 4, 7 p.m. 2015

Jenny Lawson fearlessly takes on difficult subjects of anxiety and depression with her acerbic wit, biting candor and no-holds-barred swagger in her new book, Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things. Lawson's frank and comic discussion of her mental illness has won her widespread acclaim, and her website, The Bloggess, is essential online reading. Left Bank Books hosts Lawson for a book discussion and signing at the Mad Art Gallery (2727 South Twelfth Street; 314-367-6731 or www.left-bank.com) tonight at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30 and include a copy of Furiously Happy and a priority slot in line for the signing. Non-ticketed members are welcome, but ticket buyers have priority in the line.
