“Amber is a unique combination—a creative powerhouse as well as a fierce activist and advocate who understands that ‘feminist’ is not a passive label. Era of Ignition is beautifully written, unflinchingly honest, and laugh-out-loud funny.”

– Cecile Richards, New York Times bestselling author of Make Trouble

Amber Tamblyn; poet, actor, author, and founding member of Hollywood’s Time’s Up movement, will join Women Lit on January 24th in celebration of the paperback release of her sensational new book Era of Ignition.

Amber cemented her place as one of our most original and boundary-pushing writers with her debut novel Any Man, which explored the complexities within celebrity culture, sexual violence, and survival. Her newest book, Era of Ignition, is written with the same galvanizing passion as Tamblyn explores modern feminism through the lens of her own experience as well as those of her Sisters in Solidarity. Era of Ignition is a feminist manifesto for our times, a look at inciting change in the discussion around gender inequality and what we can all do during this time of personal and political upheaval.

“The new Jenny Offill has left me soft and clear and devastated, truly feel like I will never be the same.”

– Jia Tolentino, author of Trick Mirror

National best-selling and award-winning author of Dept. of Speculation, Jenny Offill, will join Women Lit for an exclusive lunch at Poggio in Sausalito to celebrate her new novel, Weather. This highly anticipated book, written in Offill’s signature shimmering prose, sucks the reader into the mind of a mother quickly losing her confidence in the polarized world she inhabits.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to sit down with an author who re-invents the novel with each new work, an author whose writing is as essential as it is beautiful. This event has limited availability and each ticket includes a full lunch catered by Poggio, a wine reception, and a copy of Weather.

Co-Presented with Sausalito Books By The Bay

Due to a scheduling conflict, Valeria Luiselli will no longer be appearing at Women Lit on February 20th.
