As MISADVENTURES OF AWKWARD BLACK GIRL hits shelves, get some face time with me at the UW campus for a reading, signing, and discussion of my book at the University Bookstore! Learn more about this signing at the University Bookstore's website: http://www2.bookstore.washington.edu/_events/events_cal.taf?evmonth=02&evyear=2015&eventid=2014112108013800&pre=20150204&pst=20150220 Abbout the Book: Issa Rae's collection of humorous essays explores what it's like to be an introvert in a world that glorifies cool. "My name is "J" and I'm awkward - and black. Someone once told me those were the two worst things anyone could be. That someone was right. Where do I start?" Rae covers everything from cyber-sexing in the early days of the Internet to deflecting unsolicited comments on weight gain, from navigating the perils of eating out alone and public displays of affection to learning to accept yourself-natural hair and all. Rae's content has garnered over 20 million views and over 150,000 YouTube subscribers (and counting). In addition to making Glamour magazine's "35 Under 35" list as well as Forbe's "30 Under 30" list and winning the Shorty Award for Best Web Show for her hit series The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, Rae has received national attention with major media outlets including The New York Times, CNN, Elle, Seventeen, Rolling Stone, VIBE, Fast Company, MSNBC, Essence, Fader, and more.
