Unflinchingly honest memoirs about mothers, money, anxiety, and dealing with the place you come from. Featuring Gabrielle Bell, whose graphic memoir Everything Is Flammable takes place over one year in which she tries to help her mother rebuild after her house burns down; Jenny Forrester, whose debut memoir Narrow River, Wide Sky is the story of her breaking free from a culture and a place that both shaped her and held her back; and Kate Carroll de Gutes, who finds she can no longer filter her life through Instagram after a tragedy, and embarks on an experiment to be honest about her days, resulting in The Authenticity Experiment: Lessons from the Best and Worst Year of My Life. With moderator Wendy Willis (A Long Late Pledge).
