Lizz Winstead "Lizz Free or Die"
Thursday, June 14, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Washington, United States
Lizz Winstead will discuss her book, "Lizz Free or Die" at the National Press Club.
Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show, comedian and insightful social critic, pens an account of how she discovered her comedic voice.
From her childhood longing to be a priest, to her role in developing The Daily Show and her life today (complete with two difficult dogs), Winstead has tapped an outrageous and heartfelt vein of the all-too-human comedy. In this collection of autobiographical essays, Winstead vividly recounts how she fought to find her own voice, both as a comedian and as a woman, and how humor became her most powerful weapon in confronting life's challenges. .
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. Proceeds benefit the National Press Club Journalism Institute. No outside books will be permitted.
