[VIRTUAL] LitFest: Annabelle Gurwitch, You're Leaving When?

Date: March 11, 2021
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

From the ​New York Times ​bestselling author of ​I See You Made an Effort ​comes a timely and hilarious chronicle of downward mobility, financial and emotional. With signature “sharp wit” (NPR), Annabelle Gurwitch gives irreverent and empathetic voice to a generation hurtling into their next chapter with no safety net and proving that our no-frills new normal doesn’t mean a deficit of humor. In these essays, Gurwitch embraces home-sharing, welcoming a housing-insecure young couple and a bunny rabbit into her home. The mother of a college student in recovery who sheds the gender binary, she relearns to parent, one pronoun at a time. She wades into the dating pool with are upholstered vagina and flunks the magic of tidying up. ​You’re Leaving When?​ is for anybody who thought they had a semblance of security but wound up with a fragile economy and a blankie. “What do we do when we’ve already reinvented in midlife?” Gurwitch offers stories of resilience, adaptability, low-rent redemption, and the kindness of strangers.

Gurwitch will be in conversation with humorist Dave Barry. Barry is a wildly popular syndicated columnist best known for his booger jokes. The author of a dozen bestsellers, Barry won the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for commentary.
