Join us for an evening with Bess Kalb, Emmy-nominated comedy writer and the bestselling author of Nobody Will Tell You This But Me, a New York Times Editor’s Choice. Nobody Will Tell You This But Me marks the creation of a totally new, virtuosic form of memoir: a reconstruction of a beloved grandmother’s words and wisdom to tell her family’s story with equal parts poignancy and hilarity.

Bess wrote for eight years on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and also for The New Yorker's "Daily Shouts." She received a Writer’s Guild Award in 2016 and has written for the Emmy Awards, the Academy Awards, and the 2020 DNC. She is the head writer and executive producer of “Yearly Departed,” a comedy special from Amazon.

Signed paperback copies of Nobody Will Tell You This But Me are available to preorder and Zoom information provided upon registration. 

Free, virtual, and open to the community.
