Join former Writing Salon teacher Jenny Pritchett, aka Jenny True, for a reading from her new book You Look Tired: An Excruciatingly Honest Guide to New Parenthood, available for preorder now and out just in time for Mother's Day! Jenny will be joined by executive director Ben Jackson for a lively talk on Jenny's journey from Writing Salon teacher to mommy blogger to published author.

The book launch will take place over Zoom. To attend the reading, please purchase your seat by 4pm on April 16. We will email the Zoom link to everyone who has purchased a ticket.
