FURIOUSLY HAPPY by Jenny Lawson

October 12, 2015

Jenny Lawson spoke about her book, Furiously Happy, at Politics & Prose on Monday, October 12, 2015.

Lawson’s popular, irreverent web presence has earned her a Nielson-rating as one of the Top 50 Most Powerful Mom Bloggers, and her Bloggess is one of the Forbes Top 100 Websites for Women. Lawson is very funny in any format, as she proved in her first memoir, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, which recounted her childhood as the daughter of a taxidermist. Her follow-up puts a similar lighthearted spin on more challenging material: her struggles with anxiety and depression.
