Anna Holmes - Jezebelhires
Arts & Culture

jezcoverWithin months of Jezebel.com’s 2007 debut, fans of the cutting-edge website for women dubbed themselves “Jezzies”and organized meet-ups all over the world. By 2008, Jezzies’ devotion warranted a New York Times feature story, and parody blogs and copycat websites popped up everywhere. Now, with contributions from the writers and creative types who give the site its distinctive tone and influence, The Book of Jezebel offers an encyclopedia of everything important to the modern woman. Editor Anna Holmes and Seattle writer Lindy West (formerly of The Stranger and lately famous for a debate over rape jokes—and the unbelievable response to it) pore over pop culture, feminism, fashion, and sex from A (Abzug, Bella) to Z (zits!).

Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Arts & Culture series with University Book Store. Sponsored by City Arts.
Tickets: $5.
Doors open: 6:30 pm.
Town Hall member benefits: Priority seating, discounted onsite book sales.

    Dear Anna Holmes, I read about you in Mother Jones last night. Fascinating! did you grow up in Santa Cruz, CA? It sounded like it to me. I moved up here to Mendocino County when my bi-racial daughter was 7. It was hard for her up here. Very white place.
    I love you. Keep up the good work!
    Love,
    DJ Sister Yasmin
