Meet breakout stand-up comedian Iliza Shlesinger when she joins us on Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 7:00 PM to celebrate her book Girl Logic. There’s logical. There’s illogical. Then there’s Iliza Shlesinger’s “GIRL LOGIC: The Genius and The Absurdity” a subversively funny collection of observations by the star of three Netflix comedy specials.
“Girl Logic” is Iliza’s term for the way women obsess over details and situations that men don’t necessarily even notice. She describes is as a characteristically female way of thinking that appears to be contradictory and circuitous but is actually a complicated and highly evolved way of looking at the world. When confronted with critical decisions about dating, sex, work, even getting dressed in the morning, Iliza argues that women will by nature consider every repercussion of every option before making a move toward what they really want. And that kind of holistic thinking can actually give women an advantage in what is still a male world.
In Iliza’s own words: “Understanding Girl Logic is a way of embracing both our aspirations and our contradictions. GL is the desire to be strong and vulnerable. It’s wanting to be curvy, but rail thin at the same time. It’s striving to kick ass in a man’s world while still being loved by the women around you.”
This is a wristbanded event. A wristband will be issued on a first come, first serve basis to customers who purchase Girl Logic from Barnes & Noble at The Grove beginning December 7th at 9am. Limit 1 wristband per book.
