What: An adorable-hilarious reading by Samantha Irby, author of Wow, No Thank You

When: Thursday, April 9, 11 a.m. CST

Where: YouTube

With signature wit and honesty, Samantha Irby (Wow, No Thank You), is back and better than ever. In this collection of essays, Irby, now in her 40s, has gained perspective and success, but don’t worry, she hasn’t lost her raw takes on the absurdities of adulthood. Life is hard, that’s probably why Irby chose to dedicate this book to Wellbutrin. So in the interest of making things easy for you, please enjoy the YouTube of Wellbutrin, a video of a bunny while a recording of Samantha Irby reading one of her essays plays. It’s like a yule log for your quarantine.
