About the event:
Meet Lindy West, firebrand author of The New York Times bestselling memoir and now critically acclaimed Hulu TV series Shrill, as she reads from her much-anticipated new book, "The Witches Are Coming" (releasing November 5, Hachette Books).
Q&A and book signing will follow reading.
From the moment powerful men started falling to the #MeToo movement, the lamentations began: this is feminism gone too far, this is injustice, this is a witch hunt. In "The Witches Are Coming," West turns that refrain on its head. You think this is a witch hunt? Fine. You've got one.
Wests new book is a brilliant, incisive cultural critique that explains how patriarchy, intolerance, and misogyny are still alive and well. The conditions that fostered catastrophic resentment and abetted Trump's victory did not spring up in a vacuum; they are woven into America's DNA. West explores how we got here through a long lens of pop culture and examines what comes next. At once side-splittingly funny and thought-provoking, The Witches Are Coming gives us the kindling we need to burn our restrictive and outdated social norms to the ground.
