Event description

Description

Random House and LUNA Voices are thrilled to bring together three preeminent voices in cultural journalism as they celebrate their hot new books and discuss the ways in which pop culture — everything from binge-worthy TV to ubiquitous celebrities to the rise of athleisure — influences how we behave as a society.

The women will discuss their career paths, what it’s like to see their writing go viral, the joy and pressure of having readers anticipating their take on any subject, the challenges of capturing the cultural zeitgeist on the page, and of course, what cultural touchstones we should be paying attention to right now, all moderated by Jeff Tang (Product and Brand Marketing, Clif Bar).

Join us as we celebrate these powerhouse writers and their exciting new releases:

  • Linda Holmes is the beloved host of NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast. Her first novel EVVIE DRAKE STARTS OVER is a charming and heartfelt story about the unlikely relationship between a young woman who’s lost her husband and a major league pitcher who’s lost his game.
  • Emily Nussbaum is The New Yorker’s fiercely original, Pulitzer-Prize winning culture critic. Her book I LIKE TO WATCH is a provocative collection of essays that argues for a new way of looking at TV.
  • Taylor Jenkins Reid is the author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, One True Loves, Maybe in Another Life, After I Do, and Forever, Interrupted. Her novel DAISY JONES & THE SIX is a gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous break up.

What's Included:

  • Choose a copy of either DAISY JONES & THE SIX by Taylor Jenkins Reid, EVVIE DRAKE STARTS OVER by Linda Holmes, or I LIKE TO WATCH by Emily Nussbaum
  • A cocktail reception to meet and greet with the authors

Timing:

  • 5:30 PM: Cocktail Reception and meet the Authors
  • 6:45 PM: Pop Culture Powerhouses moderated conversation



LUNA Voices is a speaker series that brings to the forefront strong women sharing inspiring stories of how they’re conquering the world.
