Jennifer Weiner, author of Hungry Heart, at Boswell on Tuesday, October 18, 7 pm
You know Jennifer Weiner as many things: a bestselling author, a Twitter phenomenon, and an unlikely feminist enforcer ("The New Yorker"). She's also a mom, a daughter, and a sister; a former rower and current runner; a best friend and a reality TV junkie. Here, in her first foray into nonfiction, she takes the raw stuff of her personal life and spins it into a collection of essays on womanhood as uproariously funny and moving as the best of Tina Fey, Fran Lebowitz, and Nora Ephron.

Boswell presents a ticketed evening with Jennifer Weiner, in conversation with Jim Higgins of the "Milwaukee Journal Sentinel." Tickets are $28, including admission for one, a copy of "Hungry Heart: Adventures in Life, Love, and Writing," and all taxes and fees. On the night of the event, a $20 gift card is available in lieu of the book.

Weiner, bestselling author of 14 novels, grew up as an outsider in her picturesque Connecticut hometown (a Lane Bryant outtake in an Abercrombie & Fitch photo shoot) and at her alma mater Princeton, but finally found her people in newsrooms in central Pennsylvania and Philadelphia and her voice as a novelist, activist, and "New York Times" columnist.

No subject is off-limits in this intimate and honest essay collection: sex, weight, envy, money, her mom's late-in-life lesbianism, and her estranged father's death. From lonely adolescence to modern childbirth to hearing her six-year-old daughters use of the f-word, fat, for the first time, Jennifer dives deep into the heart of female experience, with the wit and candor that have endeared her to readers all over the world.

By turns hilarious and deeply touching, "Hungry Heart" is about yearning and longing, love and loss, and a woman who searched for her place in the world and found it as a storyteller. We're so excited to be hosting Weiner in conversation with "Milwaukee Journal Sentinel" book editor Jim Higgins.
