Kelly Oxford + Laura Brown
Monday April 17: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Kelly Oxford likes to blow up the internet. Whether it is with the kind of Tweets that lead Rolling Stone to name her one of the Funniest People on Twitter or with pictures of her hilariously adorable family (human and animal) or with something much more serious, like creating the hashtag #NotOkay, where millions of women came together to share their stories of sexual assault, Kelly has a unique, razor-sharp perspective on modern life. As a screen writer, professional sh*t disturber, wife and mother of three, Kelly is about everything but the status quo.
For anyone who ever wished David Sedaris and Mindy Kaling would just finally write a book together already, When You Find Out the World is Against You is filled with the biting, wise, and laugh-out-loud insights that have won Kelly legions of fans. She'll be joined at the Strand by Laura Brown, editor-in-chief of Instyle Magazine, to talk about all the crazy, awkward, bittersweet parts of her life, and everyone else's.
"Kelly is part geek, part freak. [Her book] takes us through summer camp, dating, rape culture, Trump, death...Kelly Oxford, c'est moi." --James Franco
