Wendi Aarons, I'm Wearing Tunics Now

This event has been cancelled and will be rescheduled!

A memoir in humorous essays, I’m Wearing Tunics Now is Wendi Aarons’s second book release this year. Her first was the middle-grade novel Ginger Mancino, Kid Comedian (June 2022, BookBar Press), in which twelve-year-old protagonist Ginger Mancino is a professional comedian facing her toughest audience (middle schoolers) when she’s forced to “retire” from comedy and live a regular life for the first time. Aarons’s publication double whammy comes after fifteen years of building an audience online. She’s contributed to McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, the New Yorker’s Daily Shouts, Us Weekly’s Fashion Police, and several other outlets (including Texas Monthly). Next year, she’ll release Socks, a meditation on our most-lost item of clothing.
