Northshire is delighted to be one of the participating booksellers for this virtual event with Jenny Lawson. She will be in conversation with her comedic foil/husband Victor to celebrate the paperback launch of the New York Times bestseller Broken (in the best possible way).


Join us on May 17 at 8 PM ET on Zoom Webinar to discuss Jenny Lawson's most personal book yet. The conversation will be followed by a moderated audience Q&A.

"In this comedic memoir Lawson describes her experience with mental illness in a way that is raw, refreshing, and honest. Alternating between absurd and hilarious stories from her life and serious discussions of depression and anxiety, this book will make you laugh out loud and then cry and then start laughing again with tears still in your eyes. This is one of the most relatable books I’ve ever read and I adored every page!"— Northshire Bookseller Madison Gallup

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Furiously Happy and Let’s Pretend This Never Happened comes a deeply relatable book filled with humor and honesty about depression and anxiety.

As Jenny Lawson’s hundreds of thousands of fans know, she suffers from depression. In Broken, Jenny brings readers along on her mental and physical health journey, offering heartbreaking and hilarious anecdotes along the way.

With people experiencing anxiety and depression now more than ever, Jenny humanizes what we all face in an all-too-real way, reassuring us that we’re not alone and making us laugh while doing it. From the business ideas that she wants to pitch to Shark Tank to the reason why Jenny can never go back to the post office, Broken leaves nothing to the imagination in the most satisfying way. And of course, Jenny’s long-suffering husband Victor—the Ricky to Jenny’s Lucille Ball—is present throughout. A treat for Jenny Lawson’s already existing fans, and destined to convert new ones, Broken is a beacon of hope and a wellspring of laughter when we all need it most.
