Jennifer Weiner interviewed by Marissa Stapley
Wednesday July 10 | 7:00PM - 10:00PM
A #1 New York Times bestselling author, Jennifer Weiner’s books have spent over five years on the New York Times bestseller list with over 11 million copies in print in 36 countries.
A 2014 New Yorker profile called Jen an “unlikely feminist enforcer” and celebrated her “lively public discussion about the reception and consumption of fiction written by women.”
In 2015, Slate praised Jen's "power-tweeting. . . feminist brand" and her mastery of the "haterbrag," "a bit of social media sleight-of-hand that turns an insult into an asset."
