NYC – Sarah’s Scribbles Signing


Cartoonist Sarah Andersen appears at Strand Book Store on Wednesday, July 20, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

Press Release:

Sarah Andersen’s “Sarah’s Scribbles” webcomics have been beloved for their frank, honest depiction of body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing. Her first book, Adulthood is a Myth, chronicles the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and it’s totally not autobiographical. At all.

Sarah will be at the Strand to talk with her many fans all about the weird and wonderful world of not growing up. Commiserate and get your copy of Adulthood is a Myth signed by the author!
