Confident Women with author Tori Telfer and special guest Lyz Lenz
Time & Location
About the Event
Hey! It's our first non-book club ZOOM event! We are proud to host house-fave TORI TELFER with her latest book, in conversation with special guest Lyz Lenz.
For con women, it’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt—but as a con-loving public, most of us stop at the “fun and games” part. Why do we enjoy these rollicking tales so much, and forget the human cost so easily? Tori Telfer and Lyz Lenz will dive into the murky world of swindlers-turned-celebrities, and try to put the “anti” back in “antiheroine.”
This event is free, and we will have Confidence Women available for sale at the store. If you're not in Los Angeles, don't forget to support your local bookstore!
