Local author Kimberly Harrington brings her book tour for AMATEUR HOUR: MOTHERHOOD IN ESSAYS AND SWEAR WORDS to a close right back here in Vermont. Hosted by Autumn Spencer, join us for a discussion of the book, standup sets from definitely-not-amateur comedians, and longtime pros Swale.
Kimberly is a regular contributor to McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, the co-founder (along with Eric Olsen of Swale) and editor of parenting humor site RAZED, and a copywriter and creative director. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Timothy McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, Splitsider, and on Medium.
"AMATEUR HOUR is an emotionally honest, arresting, and funny collection of essays about motherhood and adulthood. With accessibility and wit, Kimberly Harrington captures the emotions around parenthood in artful and earnest ways, highlighting this time in the middle—midlife, the middle years of childhood, how women are stuck in the middle of so much. It’s a place of elation, exhaustion, and time whipping past at warp speed. Finally, it’s a quiet space to consider the girl you were, the mother you are, and the woman you are always becoming.” For more information on Amateur Hour: https://www.kimberlyharrington.me/amateur-hour/
