CANCELED: Gaby Dunn Presented by the University Book Store
Unfortunately, due to the impending inclement weather, we have made the tough call to CANCEL this event. We apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this causes - we were all excited to celebrate Gaby's new book, Bad With Money, with her! If you previously purchased a ticket, it will be fully refunded, and you should see that money return to your account within a few business days.
In the first episode of her Bad With Money podcast, Gaby Dunn asked patrons at a coffee shop two questions: First, whats your favorite sex position? Everyone was game to answer, even the barista. Then, she asked how much money was in their bank accounts. People were aghast. Thats a very personal question, they insisted. And therein lies the problem.
Dunn argues that our inability to speak honestly about money is our #1 barrier to understanding it, leading us to feel alone,
ashamed and anxious, which in turns makes us feel even more overwhelmed by it. In Bad With Money, she reveals the legitimate, systemic reasons behind our feeling of helplessness when it comes to personal finance, demystifying the many signposts on the road to getting our financial sh*t together, like how to choose an insurance plan or buy a car, sign up for a credit card or take out student loans. She speaks directly to her audience, offering advice on how to make that #freelancelyfe work for you, navigate money while you date, and budget without becoming a Nobel winning economist overnight.
Even a topic as notoriously dry as money becomes hilarious and engaging in the hands of Dunn, who weaves her own stories with the perspectives of various comedians, artists, students, and more, arguing thateven without selling our bodies to science or suffering the indignity of snobby thrift shop buyerswe can all start taking control of our financial futures.
