CANCELED: Samantha Irby & Lindy West: Literati Bookstore
These two witty, wickedly funny firebrand essayists discuss their recent titles in conversation. Irby’s Quietly Hostile gives an outrageously funny tour of all the gory details behind depression memes and being inappropriately dressed, while West’s incisive cultural criticism in The Witches Are Coming extols the world-changing and laugh-inducing magic of truth. 6:30 p.m., Literati, 124 E. Washington. Mask encouraged. Free. Preregistration required (seating is limited) at literatibookstore.com/event/2023-05. 585–5567.
