Daniel Mallory Ortberg - Something That May Shock and Discredit You — at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Monday, March 2, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Ortberg, Slate’s ”Dear Prudence” advice columnist and cofounder of The Toast, follows his Texts From Jane Eyre and The Merry Spinster with a collection of essays as wildly divergent as they are startling, smart, and funny. Part memoir, the book offers an honest and profound reflection on gender transition and identity, as well as considerations of family dynamics and the meaning of faith. Other pieces locate these personal experiences within a wide range of literary and popular culture, as Ortberg explores reference points ranging from Lord Byron to William Shatner, Anne of Green Gables to a reimagined House Hunters, and the Greek myths to Nora Ephron.
