WORD Presents: Jenny Lawson’s YOU ARE HERE Launch

Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 7:00pm

"The Bloggess" & author of Furiously Happy, Jenny Lawson launches her new book, You Are Here: An Owner's Manual for Dangerous Minds.

Books will be for sale courtesy of our friends at WORD Bookstore. 

When Jenny Lawson is anxious, one of the things she does is to draw. Elaborate doodles, beautiful illustrations, often with captions that she posts online. At her signings, fans show up with printouts of these drawings for Jenny to autograph.  And inevitably they ask her “when will she publish a whole book of them?” That moment has arrived. You Are Here is something only Jenny could create. A combination of inspiration, therapy, coloring, humor, and advice, this book is filled with Jenny’s amazingly intricate illustrations, all on perforated pages that can be easily torn out, hung up, and shared. Drawing on the tenets of art therapy—which you can do while hiding in the pillow fort under your bed—You Are Here is ready to be made entirely your own.

Some of the material is dark, some is light; some is silly and profane and irreverent. Gathered together, this is life, happening right now, all around, in its messy glory, as only Jenny Lawson could show us.
Jenny Lawson: The Bloggess is an award-winning humor writer known for her great candor in sharing her struggle with depression and mental illness. Her two memoirs, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy, were #1 New York Times bestsellers.
